Since forming in 2010, StopWatch has led a wide-ranging campaign against the disproportionate use of stop and search, the increasing use of exceptional stop and search powers and the weakening of accountability mechanisms. This includes legal and policy analysis, media coverage and commentary, political advocacy, litigation, submissions to national and international organisations and community organising. The unique mix of academics, activists, young people and lawyers has proved effective at challenging the current use of the tactic and drawing attention to the realities for those on the receiving end of police powers.

The setting of B2B early intervention advocacy is a result of the many years of experience of two years professional women, that have been in diverse roles and positions in child care, primary, sceondary and youth education.

We also have outstanding knowledge and experience of supporting parents in the upbringing of their children through various training programs. We have worked in children centres delivering centre programs and activities for children and their families. Our experience within children centre has become the cataiyist of our mission to setting up B2B, because experience have shown that family whose issues are dealt with early would benefit from the onset.

We love and appreciate the diversity and vibrancy of our local communities. The resilience, drive and passion by its people has shaped the landscape of this country for generations and that’s something we feel is worth protecting. We are also aware that at times there is a disconnect between local communities and the institutions that service them. This can be for a variety of reasons from socio-economic differences, cultural differences or just a lack of understanding on both sides.

This is where Project-31 comes in. We want to empower the community to better understand their needs, decide what action should be taken in order to better support and accommodate access to the resources to facilitate positive change. We aim to work simultaneously with both local and central government bodies so that we can increase better understanding and outcomes to ‘bridge the communication gap’ and to ensure that local communities remain something that we can all be proud of for generations to come.
