During the mid-90s the Marsh Farm estate in Luton, Bedfordshire, UK, dealt with years of tension between police and disenfranchised youth, which eventually exploded into three nights of rioting. 

More than twenty years later, the community after suffering through high unemployment rates and stark poverty is finally experiencing regeneration.

Glenn Jenkins is one of the Marsh Farm Community Organisation Facilitators and is often a guest speaker for the MSt in Social Innovation students. Glenn’s passion is his community.
