Building Bridges is ROTA's youth-led research and policy project into gangs, weapon use and serious youth violence. It began in 2006, and for two years developed a youth-led research study which produced a literature review, evidenced based research report and a DVD. The findings of the study were launched at a youth-led conference: to download a copy of the post conference report please click here.
The Building Bridges Team is made up of young volunteers and have delivered work in partnership with a variety of organisations: Boyhood to Manhood Foundation, Independent Academic Research Studies (IARS), Foundation 4 Life, Choice FM (Peace on the Streets), Street Weapons Action Team (SWAT) and In-Volve (Little Miss Raw).
