REPRESENT are a team of artist-mentors and young men referred through Probation. Meeting weekly, we focus on creativity as a means to open up conversation, develop talent and build a creative community. The project is co-designed by the participants as they discover what they need to move forwards positively in their lives including studio time, ongoing education, mentoring or tuition.

In 2019, Sussex was one of 18 areas allocated funding by the Home Office to establish Violence Reduction Units / Partnerships, which adopt a public health approach to tackling and reducing crime.

The Sussex Violence Reduction Partnership (VRP) aims to protect young people and make our communities safer. It does this by bringing together the police, local authorities, criminal justice, the NHS, public health and community organisations to tackle the root causes of serious violence in Sussex.

REPRESENT is the brother project to long-established Miss Represented.
