What Southwark young people have to say
I listen to drill music but I don’t act that way.
I have left my house one day and I’ve seen a shooting, and someone was killed opposite my house.
The value of Bede? Bede’s my family. My second family.
“I want to know why isn’t it safe for a child to grow up in Southwark.”
“Last year we had two deaths in our area, and I live right in front of the block … I knew the two boys, I used to play football with them. One of them was stabbed and one was shot. … we should be investing in youth clubs.”
Maybe we need to know more about how to handle peer pressure in other situations, you know, how to deal with mental things in other situations.
It scares me to even talk to anyone. Most of the time I just bottle it.
