A Community Research Project Focused on the Effects of Youth Violence and Crime

Between June 2019 and March 2020, You Press collaborated with the Greater London Authority (GLA) in order to deliver a follow-up community research project that focused on social inclusion, integration and developing civic leadership in communities that currently do not have a voice in City Hall.

Based on the findings from last year, ROOTS LDN 2019 focused on the communal concerns of Youth Violence and Crime. This project involved 15 researchers from the BAME demographic ranging from 16 to 30 years old. Once the data had been collected, the researchers converted their findings into original artistic responses.

You Press are very proud of the success of the research model used in the Roots LDN Community Research project.

We would love to hear from you if you are interested in partnering up with us to deliver a similar research project in your own organisation.
