Sure Start

Sure Start is the government programme to deliver the best start in life for every child. They bring together early education, childcare, health and family support.

Strathclyde Police

Their Violence Reduction Unit works closely with other professionals, including social workers, health experts and academics. Together, they share information to develop a better understanding of violent behaviour. This is used to create strategies for tackling violent behaviour and to challenge society's attitudes towards violence.

The Violence Reduction Unit is headed by Detective Chief Superintendent John Carnochan, who contributed to the Panorama film.


Prospex is a community-based charity working to improve the lives of young people in the Caledonian Road area of North King's Cross in London. They aim to meet the needs of the young people we come in contact with regardless of race, colour, creed, gender or situation.

Their approach is to first build strong, positive relationships of trust with each young person. They then use those relationships to meet that young person's needs in practical ways and to progress and develop each young person by supporting, motivating, challenging and encouraging them to better themselves.

Don't Trigger

This government-backed campaign aims to "deliver a music-led multi-media attack on the blatant and subliminal endorsements of gun culture fashion; a hard-hitting, in-your-face, uncompromising reality check for those who have been seduced into this negativity; and a campaign strategy that will carry street cred, artistic integrity and commercial viability."

MTV Base

MTV Networks are supporting the Don't Trigger Campaign by airing the "Why?" video on the MTV Base channel in the UK and putting it on their playlist.
