Newham Council is committed to ensuring that everyone in the borough feels safe to walk our streets and enjoy all that Newham has to offer. Our young people are vital to us, to the future of the borough, and we must ensure they have a sense of worth, of their contribution to our society and communities and assure them that we are providing support and encouragement to them for their futures.
