Croydon BME FORUM work’s hard to establish and maintain positive working relationships with all stakeholders to provide an all round quality service. We achieve this by having strong, visible management structures and working in a warm, friendly, accountable and professional way.
Your future is in your hands. What do you choose to do with it? Who do you choose to be?
#Chooseyourfuture unites Croydon against serious youth violence and supports young people to make positive choices and be successful.
With 93,000 young people living in Croydon (that’s one-fifth of the population) the choices they have and what they choose to do matter to everyone.
The Choose your future campaign aims to:
- Support young people in avoiding the poor decisions that could ruin their lives.
- Unite Croydon in helping young people build successful futures.
“Croydon had one of the highest levels of youth violence in London over the past year, new statistics show. Levels of youth violence across the capital are on the rise according to new figures released by the London Assembly. In Croydon, there were 313 recorded victims of serious youth violence, classed over the past 12 months, more victims than any other outer London borough.”
Croydon BME Forum is leading the way in the local community against serious youth violence. In partnership with Croydon Council, Police and other stakeholders, the Forum meets every six weeks to discuss issues in Croydon and to plan strategies and solutions around SYV.
If you would like to be part of the solution please give us a call or email us.
Croydon BME Forum in partnership with Croydon Council have been planning the annual acknowledgement of Black History Month; A celebration of important achievements and contributions that the black community have made and are currently making.
The theme this year is to embrace our young people in the community and so will be focused around being black, bold and achieving. Colours, art, music, food, drama creativity and entrepreneurialism plus more will be used to showcase the theme.
Further announcements will be made to the website, so do keep a look out.
