We’ll be training two groups of local people to research and campaign to make private renting fairer for young people and to build safer and more welcoming communities.
Because of the success of our first Peer-Action Research project last year, we’re recruiting for these two exciting new research projects. Both are aimed towards making Tower Hamlets a better place to live for everyone.
Our first Peer-Research Action
project looking into the needs of older people in Tower Hamlets.

work, we are launching a new research project on community safety and cohesion.
We are looking for Tower Hamlets residents interested in the issues faced by
their community to become peer researchers. As part of a team, we will support
you to conduct research, come up with solutions and campaign to build a safer
and more welcoming community to live and work in.
Making renting better for young people in Tower Hamlets
Are you young and

renting can be made better and more secure for young people, and would similarly like to
hear from people interested in helping their local community.
