The Youth Violence Commission

Developing policy to address youth violence

The background and remit of the Commission

Following a debate in Parliament, a Cross Party Commission was launched in 2017 to examine the root causes of youth violence in England, Scotland and Wales. The Commission is consulting young people and working with academics and practitioners to better understand how serious violence manifests itself in many young people’s lives.  The Commission has the support of MPs from across political parties but it is not funded by Government, nor is it an All Party Parliamentary Group.  It will produce a written report with policy recommendations to address serious, youth violence issues.
