The Office of Police and Crime Commissioner and the Violence Reduction Unit hosted a joint launch of the #stopviolence social media campaign at the Broadway Cinema in Nottingham yesterday.
I can also announce that I have also been welcomed as the latest Community Ambassador for the Violence Reduction Unit.

Following the launch of the first phase of the campaign in 2020, it has received national award and recognition due to the strong element of youth voice and youth collaboration in tacking themes around serious violence. The campaign has proved credible in engaging young people, with over 400,000 children and young people reached to date. As a result they have been signposted to support, advice and interventions through the Nottingham Youth Network | Hashtagng website, https://www.hashtagng.co.uk/
