TO SERIOUS YOUTH VIOLENCE

 

HOW WE CAME ABOUT

Croydonsaysno

We are a group of family and friends who have been directly or indirectly affected by serious youth violence.

 In March 2018, Kelva-Jay Smith aged 20 lost his life in South Norwood. Under two years before in August 2016, Andre Aderemi lost his life aged 19 on the Monks Hill Estate in Selsdon.

Both boys coming from Croydon meant that these deaths impacted a huge part of the community and affected everyone that they knew. The families came together to support one another and also to campaign for change. Croydonsaysno to serious youth violence was born to raise awareness, support bereaved families and also promote events and services to help young people avoid the road life.

In August 2019, this concept grew to become nationwide uniting communities up and down the UK to duplicate events in unison and show solidarity to the cause.
