This week, we hosted a special event with Home Secretary, Priti Patel, to launch the Youth Endowment Fund’s flagship Toolkit. We were joined by the Minister for Safeguarding, Victoria Atkins MP, and an expert panel of speakers to discuss the importance of evidence-informed services to keep children and young people safe from violence.
Our Toolkit is one of the important ways we’re helping to put knowledge of what works to prevent serious violence into practice. It summarises the best available research evidence about different approaches in a way that’s easy to access, easy to understand and easy to apply.
