Chuka joined members of the Mountearl and Adare Tenants and Residents Association, along with the local Safer Neighbourhood team and Youth workers to discuss some of the main issues affecting residents living on the estate.

Following a number of tragic incidents of youth violence in Streatham, residents were keen to talk about how this and related issues are affecting life and young people on the estate as well as how the different agencies are working together to try and deal with the problem.

Chuka said: “Thank you to Mountearl and Adare residents for hosting my visit to the estate. It is heart breaking each time I hear that a young person in my constituency has been affected by youth violence, and seeing the anguish this causes communities, so it has been good come here today to discuss this and other concerns with residents, and to bring together the key stakeholders working on this issue.”
