Therapeutic Intervention for Peace (TIP)

The TIP programme responds to the challenges faced by young people and communities through culturally sensitive support for those who need it most.

The TIP programme responds to the challenges faced by young people and communities through culturally sensitive support for those who need it most.

TIP doesn’t just talk about these challenges. We actively work with young people and families to co-design support that improves their wellbeing and resilience.

TIP Report

TIP Pilot

Following the launch of the TIP Report in 2020, Power The Fight has begun to pilot the report’s recommendations and is currently working in three schools in South East London. As part of this pilot, we partnered with the Youth Justice Board and Lewisham Council for the first three months of 2021. The findings from this period are summarised in this short film, or you can download the evaluation report below.
