With Knife attacks, abuse, mental health, bullying, peer pressure, young people self-harming and more atrocities affecting young people in the UK, another beacon of hope has been launched in a massive way right in the heart of Southwark, London where knife crime has been rampant.

“The Listeners101” is a voluntary phone line service set up to just listen to young people vent, rant or share their fears or concerns to people who would not judge them but just actively listen. ‘The Listeners101’ was launched at 805 Restaurants, a large community based African restaurant chain, who supported the cause by providing all the drinks, food and venue complimentary.

Each speaker shared incredible insights into interactions between young people and society.
