worried about gangs and knife crime?

Many teenagers and young people spend time with the same group of friends. When does this become a problem? When should you be concerned about gangs? A gang is usually considered to be a group of people who spend time in public places that:

  • see themselves (and are seen by others) as a noticeable group, and
  • engage in a range of criminal activity and violence

They may identify with or lay claim over a certain territory, or be in conflict with other gangs. If you are concerned about a young person who may be involved in gangs, please call the Brent Family Front Door on 0208937 4300, or contact the agencies below directly to access support.
