Parent Support & Social Research
Tackling UK's Knife Crime Epidemic and supporting high aspirations in low-income communities.
Since early 2019 The Roger Diamond Foundation (RDF charity) has been listening to parents from challenging UK neighbourhoods. After numerous discussions with parents and parenting experts we now design, run and promote tuition, projects and services especially designed to help parents/guardians in those communities. Our mission is that more and more children are less likely to do poorly at school, get involved in anti-social behaviour or knife and gang crime, etc.
We offer general guidance and free resources to parents. Whenever possible, we offer quality video-call lessons or online tuition to low income families for free or just a small contribution.
We also organise events and productions for the public and our members. Currently these usually promote further awareness and discussion on Parenting, Black Culture, Youths or related issues.
This charity is administered by trustees and volunteers. Collectively we have decades of experience providing aspirational guidance to parents and young people. Providing advice and tuition that can help parents help their children have better chances for success in education and life in general.
In the background, we're continually consulting parents/guardians, parenting experts, organisations, educationalists, community workers etc. We are always researching deeper and deeper into the core reasons and probable solutions for low youth self-esteem and the disproportionate surge in youth gang culture, violent-crime and related issues of concern.
The last few months has seen an extraordinary increase in 'county-lines' drug crime, black-on-black youth and gang related revenge killings in London and other major cities. If you agree inspired, socially mobile young people (regardless of ethnicity or colour) is good for society as well as challenged communities - please support our work to help develop it further and keep it going.
