Peer Action Collective Project


The Peer Action Collective project aims to bring young people together, particularly those with some lived experience of violence, in order to research, explore and take action on the root causes of youth violence through a series of creative approaches. The three consortium partners, Unloc, Artswork and Youth Options, will deliver the programme in partnership with young people from across the Portsmouth, Southampton, Totton and Eastleigh areas. This will include twelve paid young researchers undertaking a research project, supported by Artswork and Youth Options, to better understand youth violence in the region. This will be followed by a ‘Changemakers’ social action programme led by Unloc in which young people will use creative approaches to build on the evidence garnered by the young researchers – to design, develop and deliver their own social action projects.
