Islington Integrated Gangs Team Privacy Notice

Our Integrated Teams (IGT) works in partnership to support those involved in group offending and serious youth violence or those on the periphery of gangs by way of prevention, diversion and, where necessary, enforcement.

IGT works with individuals and communities by treating violence as a preventable issue. It seeks to avert violence by diverting those who are at risk of becoming either a victim or perpetrator and supporting those already involved in group offending to exit their lifestyle and, where necessary, enforcing against those who commit violent crimes and pose a risk to others. By working with individuals, families and the wider community, the IGT identifies ways in which to reduce violence and create a safer Islington for everyone.

What we do

IGT brings together the police, council, and other strategic partners to divert people at risk away from gangs and serious youth violence. IGT brings key professionals from a broad range of organisations to work together in the same place with the shared aim of tackling gang-related violence and to support young people, adults and their families. Through a balanced approach, we can help create a safer community for local people and keep them out of the criminal justice system.
