Campaigners say ‘ENOUGH!’

May 5, 2009

Today I led a delegation from the ENOUGH! campaign to the Treasury. ENOUGH! is a local campaign to make youth violence history. It’s a coalition of local people and organisations who are deeply concerned about the level of violence that affects young people in southeast London. In the meeting with Yvette Cooper, Chief Secretary to the Treasury, we urged the Minister to ensure that new funding recently ear-marked for youth projects around the country, be targeted at existing youth organisations, which are tackling youth violence in southeast London. There are dozens of great youth organisations in Lewisham, but many struggle for funding. We want to see this new money being prioritised for youth projects that are already doing important work to end the violence our young people suffer from every day.
