The Prince of Wales, Patron of Safer London Foundation, held a reception at Clarence House on Wednesday for young people, guests and volunteers to commemorate the work of the charity.
Among those attending on Wednesday evening were some Foundation supporters, including the Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe and the Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime in London Stephen Greenhalgh.
Safer London deliver projects and programmes that ward off crime, aid crime victims and campaign for community safety. The group works with young people to stop and decrease dangerous youth violence and violence against women and girls.
“Children and young people across London face very real issues. It is vital these young people have somewhere they can turn and someone to talk to, where they do not feel judged,” Safer London Foundation Chief Executive Claire Hubberstey commented.
Hubberstey noted: “we are extremely grateful to His Royal Highness Prince Charles for hosting this event at Clarence House.”
Prince Charles became Patron of the Foundation in 2004.
