In July 2008, ROTA launched the findings of the Building Bridges Project at a youth-led conference. The event highlighted the findings of a two-year youth led study into gangs and the use of weapons in London.
The purpose of the research was to establish a preliminary baseline dataset of the lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) community, supported by primary and secondary research and qualitative narrative on the barriers to employment, skills and training for Londoners with an alternative sexual identity.

In the changing policy, legislative and institutional environment, this timely report presents evidence based recommendations on how to move forward on race equality in London.
This report is about small community groups that have been working, or would like to work, in the field of community reassurance. The report outlines what they have done so far and how they could be supported to link better with current structures, public services and larger VCS organisations.

This report brings together the ideas and themes that resulted from several events along with case studies and examples of simple steps that Local Strategic Partnerships' (LSPs)could take to improve communications with BAME communities.
