The Independent Riots Communities and Victims Panel has been set up to examine and understand why the August 2011 riots took place.

Our final report will be presented to the Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Minister and Leader of the Official Opposition in March 2012.

We still want to hear from as many people as possible - the most important part of our work is to listen to the people who have been affected by the riots and to make sure everyone has the chance to have their voices heard.

The interim report includes a response form (external link) for communities, victims and organisations to provide their views to us in the second phase of our activity You can also submit your views to us via the contact details on the contact the panel page and follow the work of the Panel on twitter - @riotspanel.
