The third webinar of our BBB Youth Welfare series will discuss the knife crime context for Leicester and how we can #BuildBackBetter in relation to the problems associated with it.

Chaired by Ross Little, senior lecturer in criminology at De Montfort University and Deputy Chair of The National Association for Youth Justice, we will be joined by:

  • Clifton Muir, Violence Intervention Project (VIP) worker, Turning Point Leicester
  • Grace Strong, Strategic Director of the Violence Reduction Network
  • Hannah Keys (Neighbourhood and Environmental Services) and Daxa Pancholi (Head of Community Safety and Protection), Leicester City Council
  • Rukhsana Hussain, Outspoken community organisation

Our speakers will discuss the priorities for Leicester in seeking to prevent knife crime and promote desistance and the event will conclude with a Q&A from the audience.

Our ongoing series of #BuildBackBetter webinars focus on Youth Welfare and will continue to run over the coming months. The BBB Youth Welfare webinar series is a partnership between De Montfort University through the Social Care Learning and Development Hub, Leicestershire Cares and the LLR Safeguarding Children Partnerships. If you care about how government, community and business can best work together so nobody is left behind then were sure you’ll find plenty of food for thought and discussion here.

Registrants will receive a link to join the online talk 24hrs before the event, via their provided email address. Please contact the DMU Events Office on if you have any questions.
