We create exciting projects and initiatives for local communities.
This year we will be running some great projects for the whole community to get involved!
We inspire communities to come together on issues of common concerns and support them to resolve any problems and barriers they are faced with.
We build new opportunities for local people helping them to find employment and training opportunities.

This year one of our main area of work will be looking at the effects of knife and gun crime on our community. We will run a series of workshops for children, young people and families from the Cantelowes Ward in Camden and work with them to organise a major knife and gun crime awareness event.
Over the year we will work with some exciting partners and artists to deliver fun and friendly workshops that young people can get involved.
