The GOT (Getting on Together) project came into being as a result of social tensions in the wake of the atrocity in New York on 11 September 2001 (9/11). The project was given a further priority following the bombings in the London Underground and the double-decker
bus at Tavistock Square on 7 July 2005 (7/7).
