Critical Encounters: Young People and the Police

Workshops are led by young people with police officers in a safe, creative space where the voices of young people are heard and their views taken seriously. This ongoing work is recognised as an example of good practice.

No More Hate: Working Together 

Second Wave initiates and supports community forums led by young people where the issues of hate crime can be discussed in a safe space. These efforts promote critical awareness and ways of working together to build community resilience.
