440+

FAMILIES SUPPORTED

CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE SUPPORTED

Our ‘One Mic, One Life’ projects has enabled us to start dialogue with children, young people and the local community around knife and gang crime; as well as being able to deliver fun and exciting workshops, providing positive diversions for young people.

PEOPLE HELPED INTO WORK

Last year we helped 102 local residents into PAID work, thorough our estate based 1-2-1 Information and Guidance sessions.

JANUARY 2018

I didn’t really get involved in the stockroom, too many girlies in there. But I loved delivering the food parcels to people on my bike. I’d like to think the new mobile food bank was our idea!

Our Programs

We create exciting projects and initiatives for local communities, designed to empower people to come together on issues of common concerns and support them to resolve any problems and barriers they are faced with.  

MOBILE FOOD BANK

Thanks to the wonderful generosity of Tesco bags of help fund and the wonderful local people who voted for us, our young volunteers were able to set up a mobile food bank. Supporting vulnerable families who live on local estates, our young volunteers provide wonderful food parcels to those who really need it.
 

ONE MIC, ONE LIFE

This year we will be focusing on the increasing knife and gang crime in the borough and continuing a dialogue with young people and the community on how we can come together and deter them from crime and its effects.

CHEER & TUMBLING

As part of our ‘One Mic, One Life’ project we have teamed up with Affinity Allstars, who specialise in working with vulnerable girls, delivering cheer, tumbling and street dance workshops. They focus on building relationships and team work, as well as getting young girls to think about positive body image and being strong both physically and mentally.
 

Employment & training

Through the use of local community spaces we are able to take Employment and Training direct to the community. This enables us to deliver estate based weekly employment sessions that help local people into work.
