About The Event

Are you worried about the violence affecting the youth in the UK? Do you have children that have been affected by gun and knife violence? Are you a parent in pain because of your child?

As a parent, your voice needs to be heard! Join us for this very practical and much needed workshop with barrister, author and mother Margaret Bankole.

Speaking from her own experience with a wayward son who turned his life around, Margaret Bankole will not only provide a voice of hope and transparency but will also teach you practical ways to reconnect and fight for your child. 

The workshop includes first-hand testimony, research context relevant to gang-affected youth, understanding the roles and complexities of young people in gangs, interactive exercises and introduction to practical tools for parents to engage and help their children affected by gun and knife crime.

As a practising barrister, she will also address the criminal justice system, legal advice and representation.

It really doesn’t matter how far your children fall, they can come back!
