The Concern Hub is a multi-agency diversion initiative, not a replacement for the MPS’ Gangs Matrix or the Gangs Matrix in another name. The Met, in collaboration with Lewisham Council, is developing a new multi-agency diversion initiative called The Concern Hub. This pilot, due to launch in Lewisham this month (May 2019) aims to safeguard young people at significant risk of becoming involved in violence, drugs, or gang activity.

Further detail on the Concern Hub is set out under Mayor's Question 2019/8882.
