The Ecosystem Coldharbour Consortium brings together well-respected community organisations which have experience working with the community to
deliver a range of initiatives, including violence reduction.
The Consortium is funded by the My Ends programme which provides support for neighbourhoods that are experiencing higher than normal levels of violence. My Ends is one of the strategies being executed by the Mayor’s Violence Reduction Unit which you can learn more about here and see the press release here.
