Welcome to our website. Over the coming weeks we will be adding information here about our approach and ways to work with us
The Ending Youth Violence Lab (the Lab) is a new venture between Stuart Roden, The Youth Endowment Fund and the Behavioural Insights Team which seeks to be part of the solution to ending youth violence and improving outcomes for children.
The UK evidence base on the most effective approaches to supporting children at risk of becoming involved in crime and violence is limited.
The Lab will work with partners in the sector to address gaps in the evidence and ensure that we are providing effective services to vulnerable children.
We will focus on the development and early stage testing of interventions, building a pipeline of high-quality, UK-based interventions which are ready for – and committed to – rigorous impact evaluation.
