High Trees have recently secured funding for a innovative peer-led research project to explore the Changing Landscape of Brixton.
Funded and supported by the Greater London Authority (GLA), this project focuses on the effect of Brixton’s changing landscape on the previously established communities. High Trees is training 15 local people in Community Organising and peer research to go out and listen and capture stories from local residents to find out about their experiences. Specifically focused on young Black men under the age of 25 and older Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic people over the age of 65, but interested in hearing from everyone who calls Brixton home, we want to hear about the impact of these sweeping changes and explore ways in which both old and new communities could come together to build a stronger Brixton.
High Trees are delighted to be part of this pan-London project funded by the GLA to begin to begin to build relationships and develop civic leadership in communities that currently do not have a voice in City Hall and to ensure that policy is shaped by those it most affects.
More information about the outcomes of this project, how to get involved in the conversation and community action that follows will follow throughout the project.
