More Anti-Gang Crime Funding In London

Projects in Merton and Hammersmith which help keep teenagers out of gangs, are the latest to be given a share of £18 million in government funding.

The fund, which was set up after the riots last August, is being boosted by a further £500,000.

The Home Office previously announced £18 million of funding until 2013 to support the police, local agencies and voluntary sector to tackle knife, gun and gang-related violence and prevent youth crime.

The additional £500,000 will go to the £4 million Communities Against Guns, Gangs and Knives Fund, which supports 189 voluntary and community sector organisations.

The four new areas to receive support through the Ending Gang and Youth Violence team are Hammersmith and Fulham, Merton, Leeds and Bradford.
