The voice of youth affected by custody deaths

Background Summary

The United Families & Friends Campaign and 4WardEver UK with support from Migrant Media and The Edge Fund are to hold the second of two events in Birmingham on 9 September 2016.

Venue: Erdington Six Ways Baptist Church
Wood End Road
Erdington, Birmingham B24 8AD

The focus of both events will be on young people affected by losing a relative in custody and will include speakers, music, poetry and film. The secondary purpose of the events is to promote and encourage donations to The Mikey Powell National Memorial Family Fund which was launched in September 2015.

4WardEverUK is pleased to confirm that representatives from the Sarah Reed Campaign for Justice will be attending as our keynote guest speakers.

Statement on behalf of the organisers

“The plight of young people left behind after losing a relative in custody is often overlooked, not addressed or supported in a coordinated or practical way by either the authorities or the campaigning community as a whole.

“This event seeks to hear the stories of young people (or those that were young at the time of their loss), how they were affected, and what support would have assisted them immediately following the loss of their loved ones. Equally, the event will explore the impact on the family unit as a whole.”
