Think First raises awareness of gang culture, youth violence, confrontation and using weapons. It’s based on a music video developed specifically for young people in Dudley, highlighting the issues that really matter to them and the consequences of getting involved in this type of activity.
The project also focuses on early intervention in both schools and other settings across the borough such as youth clubs, and as a result there are over 40 resources available for practitioners to use when working with young people. There’s also a Think First leaflet for parents and carers to help them to spot the warning signs that a young person may be getting involved in gang type activity, including useful links to organisations who can help or offer more information.
