Exploitation doesn't stop just because you're in lockdown
GROWING AGAINST VIOLENCE
Growing Against Violence (GAV) is a charity that aims to prevent youth violence and protect young people against exploitation by gangs and grooming both on the streets and online.
GAV delivers age appropriate workshops into schools and colleges for both pupils and teachers.
Our workshops address the root causes of violence and work on keeping young people out of gangs, exploitative peer-on-peer relationships and away from antisocial behaviour.
Message about Covid-19
Our in-class workshops are temporarily suspended.
We are developing a remote workshop delivery model which will begin in September 2020.

While social distancing is in place GAV is offering online tutorials free of charge.
Tutorials do not replace workshops. However, they provide information on the risks we address in our extensive curriculum. They are designed to support constructive conversations between young people and a parent, teacher or a trusted adult.
