Information initially was predominantly drawn from personal experience. We grew up in estates across London plagued by gun violence, drugs and gangs and have lost close friends and family members to this lifestyle (either dead or in jail). Most of our detailed information comes directly from those involved or associated to those involved. In recent years this has expanded to speaking with professionals such as teachers and youth offending workers. When we started this there was little available on the internet or in books etc, not sure if there was even anything online. We have some very significant contacts across London who we are very grateful to for helping contribute to the areas we knew little about. In recent years we have been able to take advantage of the imagery and keep up to date with the younger generation through various open source information such as MySpace, YouTube, online forums, Facebook, national and local news articles.
