The Harrow Sanctuary Scheme is a victim centred initiative, which makes it possible for victims of domestic violence to voluntarily remain in their homes and feel safe, without fear of attack. The main feature of this pioneering scheme is the creation of a sanctuary or safe room within the house, which enables the occupier to retreat to a place of safety to await the arrival of the police and other emergency services.

Icehearts is not considered as a diversion from or alternative to time spend in criminal activity. Rather, sport is used as a means of establishing relationships with at-risk children and their families. The programme also aims at preventing circumstances that would lead to the taking of the child into custody by the child welfare authorities. Other objectives are to decrease inequality, prevent truancy and drop-outs, help ensure a peaceful and orderly school environment.
