How do you help young people struggling with conflict?

Leap Confronting Conflict provides conflict management training for young people and the adults who deal with them. They work with people who've been in prison, involved with gangs, in care, excluded from school or with difficult home lives.

Leap has 30 years' experience providing conflict management training and support for young people and the adults who work with them. They give people the tools to shift their thinking and behaviour - and transform their lives

One area 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/criminal behaviour or not in mainstream education. They have been running a project in Lambeth working with young women at risk of gang involvement and exploitation, helping 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.
