The Peace Alliance now works nationally with key statutory agencies such as the Home Office and the Metropolitan Police advising on key policy issues. It has now been recognised as a successful model for partnership working and is currently working across London and the United Kingdom with several other key organisations.
The Peace Alliance is well known for its work in gun and other violent crimes, youth crime, working with victims and families of victims of crime as well as young people to reduce crime in communities.
