Big Dreams Small World

At Eagle London Agency one of our passion is to empower talents from BAME background. With the rise in Knife and Gun crime amongst the ethnic youth community in London, we were moved to take an action. In response, we researched in collaboration with Kay Scorah and Thandi Mundi into some of the causes of this menace amongst the youth.

We conducted an in-depth research project with young people living in some of the areas worst affected by knife crime. We asked them to share with us their hopes and dreams for the future and to tell us how we can help them to achieve their life goals.

Our aim

We aimed to look beyond the statistics on the knife and gun crime, and to stay away from the blame game. We wanted to understand the hopes and dreams of London’s black youth, (which must surely not be to join a gang and risk prison or early, violent death?) and come up with some ideas as to how we could help them fulfil their ambitions.

Outcome

Our research report has helped us identify some of the actions that need to be taken to minimise this issue. It has also given us project ideas to work on as part of our organisational social responsibilities.

Below are a list of outcomes from our research;

  • Greater support for single parents and minority families.
  • Effective communication using an agency that understands black ethnic community culture
  • Using community leaders and relatives to form a bridge between the police and the community for positive cohesion.
  • Creating a central hub where all resource providers can be linked and information about the various projects disseminated properly to the youth who need the services/resources.
  • Youth centres with practical tools and skills offered to the youth. Faith centres & football clubs can be drafted in, empowered and equipped to run effective youth programmes in the communities
  • Aunties & Uncles project. A mentoring scheme working with ethnic minority adults who have achieved in their various fields to serve as positive role models for the youth.
