Thanks to all of you who packed the room at the joint CVSA (Croydon Voluntary Sector Alliance) and CYP &FN (Children, Young People, & Family Network) meeting on youth violence; and for bringing to life exactly what taking a public health approach means in practice.

As promised we will provide further opportunities to network next year, with a focus on fundraising to support your work with young people. But we’ll begin with a follow-up meeting of the CYPFN – with a further presentation on the Youth Zone and a showing of Resilience, with its insights into adverse childhood experiences.

Dates for this and the 2019 CVSA programme will be circulated in the new year.
