In 2010 London Councils commissioned London Metropolitan University (LMU) to carry out research that would provide officers and practitioners with an insight into the characteristics of gangs and street groups in London. This paper discusses and summarises some of the issues raised in the LMU report, Confronting London’s Violent Street World: The gang and beyond.


It also presents some of the key issues raised by panelists and officers at a practitioners’ seminar held by London Councils on 3 November 2010. The paper offers useful suggestions for improving existing services and programmes targeted at reducing the impact of gang activity in the capital.
