Families Against Violence

What does Families Against Violence do?

We offer a range of services and opportunities that provides inspiration and guidance:

Improve Life Chances

At Families Against Violence (FAV), we believe in harnessing the power of sports to engage with young people, providing them with mentoring and positive role models. Through our tailored programs, we aim to equip them with essential life skills such as discipline, hard work, and perseverance. By participating in our initiatives, young individuals gain firsthand experience of these values, which empowers them to reject violence and avoid involvement in criminal activities or gangs. Our goal is to assist young people in transitioning into training or employment opportunities, thereby enhancing their life chances and opening doors to a brighter future.

Improve Relationships

FAV is dedicated to fostering stronger relationships between fathers and sons, inspiring them to recognize and fulfill their potential. Through our programs, we motivate individuals to raise their aspirations and cultivate a vision for a better future. By nurturing positive connections within families, we contribute to the development of healthier family dynamics and a more supportive environment for personal growth and success. Our emphasis on mentorship and guidance helps individuals build stronger bonds and navigate challenges effectively, leading to improved relationships and greater resilience in the face of adversity.

Proud of our Partnerships

Collaboration lies at the heart of FAV’s approach to creating positive change. We actively seek out partnerships with parents, schools, community groups, and local authorities to extend the reach and impact of our initiatives. By working closely with these stakeholders, we can identify and support young men who are at the greatest risk of being drawn into gang-related activities.         Our network of partnerships strengthens our ability to make a meaningful difference in the lives of young people, empowering them to overcome challenges and build a brighter future for themselves and their communities.
