The Violence Intervention Project

Formed in 2017, The Violence Intervention Project works with young people up to the age of 25 who are at risk or involved in Serious Youth Violence.

Our ethos is ‘short-term work, long-term relationships’ and we strive to develop strong, positive and supportive connections with our clients. From this, we are able to work with them therapeutically, to break the cycle of violence. We employ a shame-informed approach, as from our experience we understand shame as the root of violent behaviour.

Furthermore, we work flexibly and without judgement, meaning we are available whenever a young person reaches out for help. Whether this involves supporting them as an appropriate adult or transporting them to a safe location – we strive to meet the needs of our young people.
