Partners Wealth Management was inspired to support Barts Charity after hearing about the pioneering work of Mr Martin Griffiths, lead trauma surgeon at the Royal London Hospital. At one of the busiest trauma units in the UK, Martin and his team have been dealing with unprecedented levels of knife crime.
Inspired to change the future for the young people he was treating, Martin founded the Barts Health Violence Reduction Service - the UK's first programme which offers specialist ward side intervention. From the moment young people are admitted to the hospital - at their most vulnerable and open to change - the violence reduction efforts begin and will continue after discharge. The Barts Health Violence Reduction Service, in partnership with other agencies and charities, has spearheaded efforts to counsel, educate and reintergrate young people back into society, breaking the cycle of violence.
Partners Wealth Management is fundraising to support the Barts Charity Trauma Appeal with a specific found on raisng funds towards a Violence Reducation Nurse post at the Royal London Hospital.
