NPAYOF believes if the community remains silent knife crime will become the norm in our society. Therefore, we aim to intervene at every level to save our future generation. Part of our service is to build community resilience and create a space for parents to spend quality time with their children in a relaxed environment. The strength of the community can protect our young people against street violence, reduce gang culture and decrease knife crime. Our community events are to reduce isolation, provide information and create awareness of support available to them. This empower the parents and inspire them to work together to build our young people's confidence for a brighter future.
