For the Community by the Community
Centric Community Research is a Research Hub developed, owned, and operated by the communities of Lambeth and Southwark. Informed by a history of racism and discrimination against people of colour and our lived experience of racial inequities that we still face to this day, we aspire to empower diverse communities of colour across the urban landscape. Our communities and researchers are important to the work we do.
Our DNA consistently strives and drives our communities and researchers to upskill, going beyond just research through the incubation of entrepreneurship, mentoring, and training which is all part of our mission to make impactful change in the society we live in today.Find Out More
