Children warned about gang risks
CHILDREN at an Exeter school are being warned about gangs and youth violence.
More than 180 pupils at West Exe College in Alphington took part in knife crime and the gang culture workshops run by Exeter-based health awareness social enterprise SOS Global.
The Home Office Initiative supported by Communities Against Gangs Guns and Knives Fund (CAGGK) addresses the issues around offending, gangs and serious youth violence.
It involves a range of activities designed to stimulate debate, challenge negative stereotypes, attitudes and beliefs which place the young people at potential risk and help them exit this kind of lifestyle.

She said: "We have developed a grass roots project that uses drama and multi-media to get over some of the harrowing messages of this topic."
