Growth Against Violence
Growing Against Violence (GAV) is a charity that aims to prevent youth violence and protect young people against exploitation by gangs and grooming both on the streets and online. GAV delivers age appropriate workshops into schools and colleges for both pupils and teachers. At Hillcross experienced staff from the charity lead workshops with our children in Year 5 and Year 6 that address the root causes of violence and help young people to make informed choices that will help them to avoid membership of gangs, exploitative peer-on-peer relationships and keeps them away from antisocial behaviour. There are also interactive videos that can be watched by parents with their children to help facilitate conversations about these difficult topics.
