Advice to parents and carers on gangs - leaflet

The vast majority of young people are not involved in gangs and want nothing to do with them. However, the behaviour of the small number of young people who are involved has a significant impact on communities, on their families and associates, as well as themselves.

This leaflet sets out some information to help parents identify and respond if their children are affected by gangs.

Topics include:

  • Why do young people join gangs?
  • Signs to look out for
  • It’s not just boys
  • What can you do?
