Family Life and Growing Up

  • Angie Heal


Chapters from here on in this book present an analysis of interview material, illustrated by respondents’ citations. This chapter discusses their experiences of family life and growing up in Jamaica, and where relevant in the UK, and their accounts of education and employment. These issues are pertinent in order to ascertain whether they had any involvement in drugs or crime before they migrated to the UK; this included whether there were criminal influences among family or close friends which could have had a bearing on their later decisions to become involved in the UK drugs trade.
