SAVE OUR BOYS AND GIRLS
WHO WE ARE and OUR MODEL
Save Our Boys and Girls is a social enterprise and a Community Interest Company. That means we are not-for-profit – so funds we raise cover our operational costs. We are a collective of passionate, experienced professionals with backgrounds in music / media, public sector, charities, employment and rehabilitation. What unites us is our absolute determination to do something to save our young people from youth violence and gang activity and negative paths. Its our belief that positivity and inspiration can help them to become aware and therefore, make better and safer decisions.
WHO WE WORK WITH:
We are focused on helping young people in London between the ages of 13-25. Through inspiration and support, our action is largely preventative – although we also provide interventions for those who are at risk or need more bespoke support.
