Reducing youth violence on London transport is an issue that remains at the top of the policy agenda of public sector agencies, particularly the Metropolitan Police Service and Transport for London. Better understanding needs to be developed before new structures and policies are implemented. This report looks at the issue from the user perspective and produces recommendations for policy, academia and practice. Through a youth-led, qualitative methodology, the gap between the perception and experience of youth violence is analysed at the transport hubs of Elephant and Castle and West Croydon.
