Sheffield mums are campaigning to raise awareness about the rise of anti-social behaviour among youths.
Mums United runs workshops and programmes to support and educate families and young people.
Sahira Irshad, the director of Mums United said: “Violent offences amongst the youth are rising.
“We have a steady stream of youths who have been exploited by older members of gangs. They have lured them into a life of crime and it is our responsibility as mothers to take a stand.”
Their most recent campaign involves running gaming clubs.
Ms Irshad said: “It will be a safe place monitored by mentors. We want them to come to the clubs and interact in a positive way.
“They will also be participating in the workshops that we will set out for them to do so that they are aware of e-safety, social media and how to use these apps in a safe way.”
She added that they will start their Mums United programme on the 28th June. The programme will be delivered by trained mothers and mentors.
