The violence interruption project aims to reduce shootings, stabbings and killing, creating positive change for those communities most affected by such serious violence.

Founded 2011

  • Mission statement

    We aim to reduce shootings, stabbings and killings, whilst socially including those most hard to reach and disadvantaged within our communities. Chaos Theory has the credibility, respect and trust to reach those that statutory agencies cannot. Due to our ability to engage these young adults and their families, we are able to assist them in achieving positive outcomes within their lives, address issues of welfare, education and employment alongside keeping safe and healthy

    The charities model is based around support and implementation of a programme of activities that prevent offending behaviour while enhancing the personal and social development of young people/young adults to achieve and sustain improved outcomes for young offenders upon release from custody and within the community. Outreach services provides an intensive service to young people/adults with identified resettlement needs, who are subject to custodial sentences and offending behaviour. We offer intensive service to address core resettlement needs including substance misuse issues and mental health issues, housing and E. T. E. The key aims of this project are to reduce the re-offending levels for higher risk young people involved in violent crime. Our team undertake all outreach, resettlement and aftercare aspects of the work including assessments of resettlement needs, conducting custody visits, motivating and encouraging young people to attend individual and group sessions voluntarily.
