The MPS Trident Central Gangs Unit, as well as the boroughs, undertakes a range of activity with parents and parents of victims.

It is part of Trident's engagement strategy and therefore falls under normal business. It does not have a stand-alone financial stream so therefore the MPS is unable to provide a specific financial breakdown.

MOPAC will be leading on the co-design of a 'Whole School' Crime Prevention Programme in partnership with the London borough of Croydon, local and regional voluntary and community sector (VCS) colleagues, schools, parents and young people. Spend against this programme of work begins this financial year.

The London Gang Exit service provides a dedicated family support worker post that supports young individuals and their families.
