Since 2008 ROTA has conducted research on the impact of serious youth and gang violence on women and girls. This research programme began with a London-focused study from 2008 – 2010 and has now developed into a national research programme covering Liverpool, Manchester and Birmingham.

Phase 1 of the Female Voice in Violence Project, launched its report in February 2010. The report assessed the impact of serious youth violence on females in London, and made recommendations for working at a local, regional and national level.

To order a hard copy of the report please contact our Communications Manager Ryan Mahan.

From 2010-2011 ROTA will develop cross regional research in Liverpool, Manchester and Birmingham, launching a final report in March 2011. In preparation for this fieldwork ROTA produced an introductory report to the national research programme which identified work currently being conducted in the named regions and central government engagement with the London fieldwork.
