UK Gang Prevention & Awareness Resource eBook
‘Getting to Grips with Gangs’ is the hard-hitting book aimed at supporting teachers, parents and community activists in understanding and taking practical action to tackle the scourge of UK gangs.
From its powerful introduction by Letise Sampson, who draws on his own experiences of growing up within the UK gangs culture, to the many practical steps which can be taken within our homes, schools and communities, ‘Getting to Grips with Gangs’ leaves no stone unturned. It will help the reader to provide high quality gang and county lines awareness education with the confidence to answer any questions that may arise.
A Complete Resource on the UK Gangs Phenomenon
Much of the existing literature on gang culture is either outdated or focused heavily on the US gang scene. ‘Getting to Grips with Gangs’ fills the gap for the UK educational sector by combining established research with the latest trends and statistics (e.g. the apparent upsurge of violence on London’s streets in 2018 and the worrying rise of county lines drugs operations).
