Newham Council is committed to ensuring that everyone in the borough feels safe to walk our streets and enjoy all that Newham has to offer. Our young people are vital to us, to the future of the borough, and we must ensure they have a sense of worth, of their contribution to our society and communities and assure them that we are providing support and encouragement to them for their futures.
Newham’s approach to Youth Safety
Officers across our Childrens, Youth Empowerment Service (YES) and Community Safety teams are strengthening our response to critical incidents in partnership with the Police to ensure families and communities receive the targeted support they need. In addition, our Community Parenting Advocates (CPAs) offer is building a cohort of leaders and trusted adults in your local communities. These CPAs, working in partnership with Council Officers, will be your first port of call for advice, signposting and support at any time - and we will launch this offer with you more widely soon.
