Press Release – London charity Voyage Youth, helping tackle the root causes of youth crime awarded £15,000 in match-funding from Englefield Charitable Trust

Set up in response to heightened concerns over increased youth violence and murders and issues concerning racial disproportionality in London boroughs, Hackney-based charity Voyage Youth  has received a £15,000 match-funding grant from the Englefield Charitable Trust towards its Young Leaders for Safer Cities (YLFSC) BTEC accredited course.
