Overview of existing research on approaches to preventing serious youth violence
The Youth Endowment Fund’s Toolkit is a free online resource to help you put evidence of what works to prevent serious violence into action. The Youth Endowment Fund's mission is to prevent children and young people becoming involved in violence by finding out what works and building a movement to put this knowledge into practice.
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 13 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.
