During the initial fieldwork phase of this project we heard different views on how to improve the lives of people living in communities blighted by criminal gangs. Building on phase 1, the recent participatory design phase of the project involved a series of workshops in each of the areas of focus for the project, where people with knowledge and experience within these communities gave their input into the design of proposals that we will be presenting to The Executive Office. These sessions took place across a number of weeks in January and February 2019.

Following on from these workshops, we will be holding feedback events in each Communities in Transition area over the next few weeks. The purpose of these will be to feedback to participants on what we heard during recent participatory design sessions and to circulate the project proposals that have been developed ahead of submitting these to The Executive Office.
