Stop and Search

Runnymede, the UK’s leading independent race equality think tank, are looking for young people under the age of 25 to join their new youth group.

The aim of the group is to talk about the negative effects stop and search is having on young people in the UK and to put together a plan of action to tackle the problem. It will also be a way to get involved with people in the same situation as you and will give you a collective voice to fight discrimination and improve policing.

To be part of the group contact Natasha Dhumma, Youth Group Coordinator, at

In addition, television production company, October Films, is looking for participants for a research project about stop and search and its impact on young BME people. If you feel you are being stopped without good reason on a regular basis, they want to here from you.
