What is the Toolkit?
At the Youth Endowment Fund our mission is to prevent children and young people becoming involved in violence. We do this by finding out what works and building a movement to put this knowledge into practice – our Toolkit is one way we’ll do this.
The Toolkit summarises the best available research evidence about different approaches to preventing serious youth violence. It is based on real life data about what has happened when these approaches have been used before.
It provides insight on 17 different approaches, with more to be added in the future. For each approach it explains what it is, how effective it’s likely to be, how confident you can be in the evidence of its impact, as well as indicative costs and links to related resources and programmes.
