YMCA Milton Keynes writes:

“Our brand new project, tackling violence amongst young people, has officially launched within Milton Keynes University Hospital. 

Read about our Hospital Navigator Scheme to find out how we are supporting young people such as Sarah, a young woman struggling with anxiety and depression, who needed Navigator support to deal with a stalker.

This scheme is vitally needed here in MK. In the year before lockdown there were 5 fatalities as result of knife crime. A recent report found an increase of 90% in knife crime in MK, with children as young as 13 being groomed by at least 10 local gangs.”
