The London Serious Youth Violence Board – Government Office for London - UNITED KINGDOM

The London Serious Youth Violence Board's focus is to improve the way agencies share information and work together to achieve the twin aims of reducing serious youth violence and also the fear of violence across London. The London Serious Youth Violence Board (LSYVB) was set up by the London Community Safety Partnership (LCSP) following a serious youth violence summit hosted by London Councils in November 2008. London Serious Youth Violence Board - Our Key Objectives:

  • - Review data, trends, lessons learnt
  • - Evaluate what works, with a central ‘repository’
  • - Focus on priority groups and areas
  • - Improve intelligence and information sharing
  • - Focus on safeguarding
  • - Co-ordinate with key initiatives: T4A, TKAP
  • - Influence local, regional and central government - new funding streams, inspection regimes, etc.


The Board is chaired by Will Tuckley, chief executive of the London borough of Bexley, and draws its membership from various agencies working across the capital – including (but not limited to) local authorities, the Greater London Authority, Metropolitan Police, Government Office for London and representatives from the voluntary and community sectors.
