Can A & E navigators impact youth violence? 

Young people’s journeys are complex in the youth violence space but what happens when they emerge out of their individuals lives into an A & E setting because they have been hurt by a weapon? During this delicate state of mind and in this lifesaving environment, there is potential for young people to turn to a trusted adult called a navigator. Listen to our Virtual Learning Café to learn more about what the evidence says and how can this help to improve outcomes for children we are concerned about.
