Welcome to our temporary home.

The Youth Violence Commission website is currently undergoing a transformation, but we want to make sure everyone can continue to access our final report. Click on the buttons below to download it in standard or large text format. 

We hope to have the full site up and running soon.

About the Commission

The Youth Violence Commission was started by a group of MPs, but it is much more than a parliamentary project. Since 2016, we have been consulting with young people and working with academics and practitioners to better understand how serious violence manifests itself in young people’s lives.

We have spent the last five years examining the root causes of youth violence in England, Scotland and Wales in our search for solutions. We held a series of evidence sessions in Parliament and worked with our academic partners (from Warwick University and the Open University) to produce an interim written report with policy recommendations in summer 2018.

This was followed by the publication of our final report  in July 2020, which also considered the added pressures created by the COVID-19 crisis.
