ive young people the skills to manage conflict in their own lives

Leap Confronting Conflict  has over 30 years’ experience providing conflict management training and support for young people and the adults who work with them, including those who’ve been in prison, involved with gangs, in care, excluded from school or with difficult home lives.

Part of their work focuses on young women whose experiences have often been shaped by conflict, gender identity and deep trauma – such as young women affected by gangs, taking part in risky orcriminal behaviour or not in mainstream education.

They have been running a project in Lambeth since 2017 working with young women affected by gangs to help them develop a positive self-image, challenge objectification, make safer choices and develop healthier relationships. Their experience of working with gangs confirms that girls and young women caught up in them are particularly vulnerable to violence and abuse. Their curriculum has developed approaches to engage them, and to make them feel safe, supported and able to think carefully about what they want in their lives.
