Talk for a Change is working with Kaizen Partnership on research commissioned by the Resilience Consortium, a group of 29 youth organisations concerned to find a constructive and practical way forward after the riots of 2011.
Our research question is ‘How do we foster young people’s capacity and contribution to communities in order to reduce the likelihood and/or severity of public disorder in the future?’ We are interested in discovering the key untapped assets, talents and resources that young people and communities have that can support community resilience.
The focus of the research is on producing data and recommendations that can enable action-orientated project development in the next phase of the Resilience Consortium’s work. So far Kaizen have interviewed over 600 young people. We would like to supplement that with the views of those working with young people in the following areas:
Birmingham, Enfield, Haringey, Lambeth, Salford.
If this includes you please contribute your views
It will take you no more than 15 minutes and you will get access to the data and a copy of our final report.
We have been invigorated and encouraged by the enthusiasm of the workers who have already completed the survey; they work in tough places on tough issues and yet they continue to hold the hope for and have great aspirations for the young people they know.
