Geographical remit: 


Jimmy Mizen was murdered during an unprovoked attack in his local High Street. After Jimmy’s death, his parents asked, ‘Do we need more and more legislation, or do we need to ask ourselves about the kind of society we all want to live in?’


We deliver 3 distinct programmes – Safe Havens; Talks for Change; Workplace Training. The programmes are delivered to young people in schools and in our community cafes. We take young people on a journey from feeling disconnected and unsafe in their communities, to an awareness of their ability to bring about change and a desire to work with others to make their community safer. Our intensive work – Safe Havens Programme and Workplace Training - takes place within the London Borough of Lewisham. Talks for Change is a national programme that we are developing to enable us to reach more young people and make a wider impact.

The emotive and impactful Talks are delivered by Barry and Margaret Mizen. Our other activities are delivered by highly experienced youth workers and mentors.
