    Our aims and objectives

    The aim of CAV is to address the causes of violence, with a community voice, joined- up thinking and through evidence based priorities that influence policies, actions and support projects that really work by:

    • Articulating and promoting the needs and aspirations of the local community in relation to stopping  group and gang violence
    • Influencing both strategically and operationally the Police, Haringey Council (and other Local Authorities) Statutory, Community Partners and other concerned groups in relation to stopping group and gang violence
    • Engaging community, voluntary and statutory partners in developing a collective offer of support to help stop group and gang violence
    • Developing projects and accessing funding to deliver activities which will lead to a reduction and stoppage of violence.
