Aasha Gang Conflict Mediation Project
The Aasha Project is geared towards cutting crime, reducing the fear of crime, promoting citizenship and bridging the gap between communities. It focuses pre-dominantly on young people from the ethnic minority community aged between 15-21, who are at risk of becoming socially excluded or engaging in youth conflict, crime and drugs or anti-social behaviour.
The project employs a two pronged strategy to achieve its aim:
1. Conflict mediation and intervention – utilizing experienced Aasha staff and the projects wide network of informal youth contacts in the Borough to respond to conflicts as they happen with a view to interrupting, mediating and/or resolving the conflicts.
2. Conflict prevention – designing interventions and projects to engage hard to reach young people and steer them away from the gang culture and gangster lifestyle.
