It was good to see them engaging in thoughtful discussions on how to bring about social change in Barking and Dagenham and at Eastbury School. Students provided excellent responses on the following:

  • Facilitating more public events
  • Reducing the negative impact of betting shops
  • The concerning rise in number of hate crimes
  • Identifying community issues as a symptom of a larger problem in London
  • Raising awareness of current policy
  • Reducing knife crime
  • Age as a limiting factor
  • Immigration​

Students prepared great questions to ask Maragaret Hodge too. A great and productive session!
