4Front
The 4Front Project was set up in 2012 in response to the limited role young . . . people were being provided to influence change and work with our peers to reduce violence in our communities. We address violence by creating bespoke, holistic, youth-led interventions that are delivered in community, educational and criminal justice settings. Our programmes focus on personal development, social action and legal empowerment.
