Who should attend?

Youth violence is a complex, societal issue that has detrimental impacts on the health and wellbeing of children, young people and adults throughout their lives. There isn’t one catch-all solution or one agency that has the answers to youth violence prevention. Instead, we need to work together to develop a whole systems approach that will call everyone to action.

As such, the framework must be informed by the experiences and ideas of both children, young people and professionals working to prevent and respond to violence. If you are a professional or volunteer, working in youth violence prevention, please do join us and share your views.

About the Framework:

Children and young people are most at risk of experiencing violence, and most likely to experience multiple forms of interpersonal violence. However, we know that violence is both predictable and preventable, and the evidence indicates that prevention approaches are most effective when implemented with children and young people.

This framework is intended to be used by partners across Wales involved in preventing youth violence, and is it being developed by and for children and young people. It will be designed to support local areas with the delivery of their statutory responsibilities under the new Serious Violence Duty.

Online consultation

As part of the framework development we will also be running a public consultation from 3rd October – 11th November 2022. We will be circulating further details about this consultation shortly.
