Gang Awareness Workshops & Presentations

Exit Foundation offers help in every area required to exit a life of violence and crime. Our gang awareness workshops aim to provide understanding and awareness to those likely to be exposed to individuals in need. We also encourage the creation of positive role models for young people who may be affected.

We have a wide range of experience in delivering gang awareness workshops and training to a number of different organisations. Our workshops are flexible and adaptable, devised to meet the specific needs of you, your staff, and your organisation. All attendees will be provided with certificates of attendance that will state the topics covered in training. These certificates can also be used to evidence continuing professional development (CPD).

We are able to deliver engaging and accessible workshops on a number of topics including:

  • Recognising the signs of gang involvement
  • Recognising the signs of county lines involvement (children sent to a different area to live and sell drugs)
  • Crime involvement including knife crime
  • Grooming and initiation
  • Drug-taking
  • Exploitation

Provided essential information on gang influences to be aware of and children’s vulnerabilities regarding being targeted by gangs to sell drugs.

Do you and your staff have an effective understanding and awareness of gangs? Our training will equip individuals to recognise the signs of gang involvement and respond appropriately when required.

As well as our training workshops, we are also proud to offer presentations to local churches, community groups, and other faith-based organisations.

At Exit Foundation, we are faith-based but in no way faith biased. We believe that the church as a community has a major role to play in responding to the violence that we see on our streets both in prevention and intervention.

We deliver church presentations to provide:
  • Awareness and understanding of the issues facing young people
  • Share good news stories of lives changed in the community
  • Support with intervening including how to make referrals

Our goal is to support what you are doing in your community. We want to partner with your church as you serve your local community to make a real and lasting difference.

We know we cannot rely on police, or even statutory services alone, to respond to knife crime. Communities, families, faith groups, the media and cultural sectors; we all have a responsibility to encourage young people to fulfil their potential and not to carry and use weapons.

If you believe that your local church community could benefit from one of our informative gang awareness presentations, please get in touch. Together, we can make our streets a safer place for all and help provide support to individuals ready to achieve a better life.
