Join us for an interactive stall to share key findings from our research on repeat violence alongside a linked anti-violence project led by men experiencing homelessness. There will be a range of visual and interactive materials, including activities suitable for children (e.g., exploring the meaning of ‘home’) and staffed by researchers, practitioners, and people with lived experience.
Commissioned by the Scottish Government, researchers from the University of Glasgow recently completed a qualitative study of Repeat Violence in Scotland, interviewing almost 100 people about experiences of violence within their community. As part of their knowledge exchange and community engagement activities, the researchers engaged with people with lived experience of repeat violence and homelessness, including We See You, a group for men attending the Simon Community Scotland Access Hub in Glasgow city centre. In collaboration with Penumbra Mental Health, the We See You group are currently developing an anti-violence campaign and resources to support peer-to-peer practical support for men experiencing homelessness in Glasgow.
