Teenage mentor scheme stamping out gang crime in Sheffield

  • Video report by Katharine Walker

A mentor scheme in Sheffield that aims to stop young boys getting caught up in gang-warfare has issued a plea for more funding.

Big Brother Burngreave uses sports to inspire social change in the city’s youth. Trained mentors work together with young children to talk about gang culture and tackle knife crime.

In 2018 the group won the award ‘Move More Power of sports’ for their work in the community.
