Information for Gang Prevention Workers

Gang and Group Offenders - A Practitioner’s Handbook of Ideas and Interventions

This practitioner's handbook is now available for all agencies to use in their work with gang and group offenders. It has been produced using the knowledge and expertise of London practitioners and shares ideas and current interventions being used across London.
There are numerous advantages of using this handbook:

  • It collates information from multiple agencies into one place, such as local authorities, education, police, Victim Support, Crown Prosecution Service, HM Prison Service, Youth Justice Board and London Probation Trust.
  • It clarifies each agency’s role in managing group and gang offenders.
  • It is London focussed - all interventions have been used in London and contact details are provided, as well as some case studies.
  • It captures a broad range of work from early intervention to reduce the recruitment of young people into gangs, to reducing serious youth violence and enforcing the law on serious organised criminals.

The ‘Gang and Group Offenders - A Practitioner’s Handbook of Ideas and Interventions’ is available from the London Criminal Justice Partnership website
