Reports of tragic teenage deaths and gang violence seem to dominate the media, yet rarely do we hear from the young people behind the headlines. Who are they? What makes them join gangs? Is there a way out? FIGHTING CHANCE fearlessly exposes the growing problem of gang culture, challenging us to look past the stereotypes and engage with the young people involved: to mentor them, listen to them and to inspire them to consider a different way of life - before it is too late. Without sensationalising or condemning, FIGHTING CHANCE exposes what drives young people into gangs - including poverty, family breakdown, and the need to belong. But the focus is on the solution: how to prevent people joining gangs in the first place, and how to help those deeply involved find a way out. Patrick Regan not only highlights the work of the individuals and organisations who are already tackling Britain's gang problems but also challenges and inspires us to be part of the answer.
