The Peace Alliance is a National Charity working in partnership with local communities and statutory organisations on innovative crime reduction and community cohesion initiatives.
Our overarching mission is – to advance the protection and preservation of life through the reduction of crime and the promotion for the public benefit of community safety and crime prevention.
What makes us special is – our in-depth knowledge and understanding of issues around underachieving youth having worked extensively with young people who are not in education, employment or training (NEET), offenders and ex-offenders, youth offending teams, schools, colleges and the Police.
Our main aim is to provide young people who are NEET and those at risk of becoming NEET opportunities for volunteering, mentoring and skills based training in preparation for employment and to foster improved social cohesion and a sense of belonging. We also aim to work with the prison and probation service to support young offenders’ rehabilitation through volunteering, training and mentoring.
History The Peace Alliance was launched in July 2001 as a local initiative in Haringey. It was the result of a Church–led response to crime in the community. Key partners from the Church, the Home Office, the Metropolitan Police and the Borough Council and community leaders pledged to work together to promote peace in Haringey.
