A mosque in Sheffield is joining forces with a group of concerned mothers to help deal with knife crime.
The Makki Mosque and Mums United will be running an eight-week programme of education and activities looking at the issue of gang culture and its consequences.
Mosque leaders say they are helping to fill some of the gaps left by funding cuts to services for young people, which they believe have left a generation vulnerable to gangs and knife crime.
It is thought to be the first time a mosque in Yorkshire has joined a campaign to tackle the problem. The scheme will run for eight weeks but those here hope it will lead to long-lasting change.
