‘Growing up during neighbourhood change’

A research project exploring how urban regeneration impacts young people’s mental health and wellbeing in South London.

‘Growing up during neighbourhood change’ is a research project exploring how urban regeneration and gentrification impacts the mental health and wellbeing of young people living in South London. 

Produced by a team of eight young researchers from Southwark and Lambeth, and based on mixed-methods PhD research by Hana Riazuddin from the Department of Geography at King’s College London, the project draws attention to how changing neighbourhoods influence young people’s lives.

The project has published a zine and created a website to disseminate their findings.
