South Essex Homes have worked in partnership with Fury design to develop the exciting new ‘Think’ game
‘Think’ is an interactive youth & community engagement project developed to address and reduce Anti Social Behaviour and community specific issues, such as worklessness, health and social responsibilities even town planning!
Working with carefully selected 'workshop' groups (young and old alike) from the community the project development puts the individuals within the 'workshop' groups at the very heart of the project itself. Working to a schedule of development targeted at the design and construction of an interactive video game / information provider, we are able to engage the people at the very centre of the issues to be addressed.
Whether hate crime, knife crime, worklessness or drug and alcohol abuse - each and every element can be discussed, addressed and an appropriate response or solution agreed upon, within the safety of a structured and managed community based project, with the ultimate objective of promoting greater pride and a sense of ownership and well being within the community.
After South Essex Homes introduced 'Think' into the communities of Southend and Shoeburyness in Essex, Anti Social Behaviour statistics in the area from 01/04/2010 - 24/10/2010 (compared to the same period last year) showed there had been 101 less victims of ASB within this period which is a reduction of 14%. There had also been a reduction in calls reporting ASB which amounts to a reduction of 80 less calls which is a reduction of 9%.}

Anti Social Behaviour calls to police in Southend and Shoeburyness are 18% less in 09/10 from 08/09 as taken from Youth Offending Services current study on Anti Social Behaviour, after 'Think' was introduced.
