After the Riots, the final report by the Riots, Communities and Victims Panel chaired by Darra Singh, concludes that ‘the key to avoiding future riots is to have communities that work’, and warns that unless immediate action is taken, riots will re-occur.

To build social and economic resilience in communities, the Panel makes 63 recommendations. They cover early family intervention, particularly for the 500,000 ‘forgotten families’, support for the most educationally disadvantaged and for NEETs, character building, protection from ‘excessive marketing’, intensive alternatives to custody and support following release from custody, and measures to improve public perception of police integrity.

The report will be of interest to MPs, and councillors and public service providers including education providers, the police, community and voluntary services, and businesses.
