Working with Young Leaders in St Ann’s, and with primary schools, Full Effect aims to identify and support children and young people from becoming involved in youth violence and crime through a combination of early intervention, mentorship, and training.
The Royal Foundation is working with Epic Partners, the Community Recording Studio (CRS) to deliver Full Effect; a project to improve the opportunities for young people and reduce youth violence in St Ann’s, Nottingham.
Full Effect is delivering a variety of projects to engage children and young people, offer skills and training and life opportunities. The first project to be delivered, a broadcast quality short film titled Guillemot was started in April 2014 and premiered in Nottingham in early 2015.
Since then, Full Effect has continued to deliver projects which give young people skills and opportunities, with showpiece events such as the “Nott Romeo and Juliet” project, delivered with Birmingham Royal Ballet, running alongside the Full Effect mentoring and early intervention programmes in primary and secondary schools in the area.
