Reducing Graffiti and Vandalism From/For Our Youth









In 2006, Brent Council was spending approximately £450,000 a year cleaning up graffiti.The London Borough of Brent is a London borough in north west London, and forms part of Outer London. Poor reviews by Brent’s Anti-Social Behavior Steering Group led to the formation in 2007 of the Brent Graffiti Partnership Board, a multi-agency partnership aimed at reducing graffiti in the borough. The multiple programs and education that were made available to Brent’s youth has reduced their graffiti by 25%, engaged many of Brent’s trouble youth into fulfilling educational and or challenging programs, and apprehended 40+ graffiti vandals in Brent area.
