In December 2017 the Mayor of London introduced a City Hall-wide Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) Programme which will run throughout 2018.
The programme aims to empower Londoners to speak out against extremism to help keep London safe.
The Mayor’s CVE programme has three core objectives:
- working to strengthen London’s minority and marginalised communities,
- to safeguard the vulnerable
- to stop the spread of extremist ideologies
Faiths Forum for London is working with the Mayor’s Policing and Crime (MOPAC) to deliver tailored focus groups aimed at young people, aged between 13-25 across London; a chance to have their say on Government strategies and whether from their perspective they believe these are successful and whether as Londoners they feel that the city has been affected by current political climates such as hate crime.
