Castleford Tigers Foundation safer communities programme partner, West Yorkshire Violence Reduction Unit, are working with Social Finance and Rocket Science to carry out research in the areas of social media, mental health, and raising aspiration.
The West Yorkshire Violence Reduction Unit works with the police, health services, schools and other agencies to tackle the underlying causes of violence. It also helps fund local projects that undertake positive preventative work with children and young people. The information from this research will be used to recommend appropriate interventions and inform West Yorkshire Violence Reduction Unit where funding might have the greatest effect.

Rocket Science is an independent policy, research and grants management consultancy working for the public, charity and private sectors.
