Adviza - Support to young people involved in knife crime

Adviza has been chosen by The Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) as one of the 14 organisations across the Thames Valley to deliver projects to tackle youth violence, knife crime and exploitation.

The Office of the PCC has been awarded £822,000 from the Home Office Early Intervention Fund and is now leading on rolling out a programme of activities across Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire.

Working in partnership with a range of organisations including Community Safety Partnerships, Youth Offending Teams, Local Authorities and Secondary Schools, Adviza will work intensively with young people in Berkshire who are already involved in gangs and knife crime. One of the charity’s experienced Careers Coaches will provide a bespoke programme of support for each young person over a three to nine month period to help them make a positive change in their lives and move forward in learning and work. The programme will include one-to-one guidance and work experience placements.

This project involves working with young people at both ends of the spectrum of youth violence; from early intervention programmes to identify and support those at risk of involvement in knife crime, gangs or drug dealing to supporting those young people already involved; helping them turn their lives around through intensive support and skills training.

The Thames Valley Early Intervention Youth Fund programme is managed and overseen by the Office of the PCC with partner organisations assisting on the delivery and monitoring of individual projects at a local level.
