A review of poverty and needs in Barnes using Peer Research

We conducted a community needs assessment for the Barnes Fund to understand what is needed within the local communities and improve outcomes in relation to poverty, younger and older residents, mental health and wellbeing, illness and disability, digital inclusion, education, housing and leisure needs. We recruited a team of residents as peer researchers to go out into the community and speak to their peers. The final reports are intended as resources for the entire community and to maximise the future grant making of the Barnes Fund.  You can read the report here.
