Community research: crime and safety

We carried out a programme of community based research between March 2006 and March 2008 concerning community safety. This research programme covered a diversity of community safety topics, from redeployable CCTV, to designing out crime, to youth disorder and hate crime. We carried out research with many communities across Newcastle including hard to reach groups, people with disabilities and those living in deprived areas. To see a summary, click here.


"Barefoot did a fantatsic job of our evaluation. In particular, their approach to working with our service users was very impressive. The evaluation has answered many of our questions, but also asked us more, which gives us a great opportunity for the future."

Jayne Butler, Manager, The Comfrey Project

"As an organisation we felt that Barefoot did an excellent job of listening and understanding the needs of our review... We were thrilled with the final report; as well as being a very good read, the presentation and quality was excellent."

Cath Carnaby, Manager, Women's Health Advice Centre

"I am pleased with the honesty and thoroughness with which he (Christopher) dealt with the project. Thanks to the evaluation we now have a number of questions answered and a clear way forward."
