Our impact

Evidence of our outcomes is available in the following reports:

  • MOPAC Rescue and Response Strategic Assessment August 2019 - https://www.london.gov.uk/sites/default/files/rescue_and_response_county_lines_project_strategic_assessment_2019.pdf

    • 70% R&R Abianda Engagement Rate

    • see page 34 for a case study from a young woman we worked with

    • “I have realised that being in a gang is not worth it, and definitely not what I deserve in life. I now know that I am worth so much more than that… I am not the same girl I was when I entered secure, I have honestly changed and changed for the better, I truly believe that I now have boundaries to keep myself safe. I am also still learning how to navigate myself away from negative influences, I just want to be given the chance to live a normal life with my family where I belong.”

  • MOPAC Rescue and Response Strategic Assessment September 2020 - https://www.london.gov.uk/sites/default/files/rescue_recovery_year_2_sa_-_sept_2020.pdf
