This documentary grew out of LET’S TALK, a 4-year project looked into knife crime, youth violence, school exclusion, county lines, and so on, by listening to young people.

“CHANGE OF THOUGHT” [Cert 12A, 73 mins, 2022] features the stories of three young Southwark boys who face permanent exclusion but are helped by the intervention of ELEVATED MINDS and its CEO Doreen Sinclair-McCollin.

Listen to young voices telling us all how it is – in school, on the streets, with families that don’t always know what is actually going in the lives of their children. Can schools do more – should they?

Sage older voices cast an analytical eye on community-Police relations. Social media is playing a role in all this … BUT, as barrister Stephen Akinsanya observes, “We can all do something.”
