Youth violence is often synonymous with gangs.  Over recent years there has been increasing concern about knife crime, however recent reports by the Police indicate that the tide may be turning following a prolonged campaign to reduce levels of knife crime.

A recent parliamentary report (2019) showed that there was evidence that children and young people aged 15-24 years old were disproportionately represented, making up almost 50% of those killed with a gun or a knife in London, but only making up 12% of the population of London.

Violence is used primarily as a means of coercion and control, and this can also include sexual violence.  Any violent attack (be it physical or sexual) can have life-changing consequences (visible or otherwise) and as we have seen above, can lead to fatalities.
