Challenge

Though a wealthy city there are boroughs in London experiencing the effects of poverty deprivation. The Caledonian and Holloway wards where we work in Islington are ranked 1st and 4th lowest for child wellbeing. Cuts in council budgets have resulted in fewer affordable facilities for children & young people leaving them more susceptible to anti-social behavior and gang culture. We engage those from families experiencing financial or social hardships and who are disengaged/expelled from education

Solution

Through our 3 work streams- Street Team, Youth Hubs and One-2-One, children and young people gain free access to projects and programmes which build their confidence and help them develop practical and life skills. Our youth hubs help them discover their leadership potential, supports their ability to sustain positive relationships, and enables them to gain useful qualifications to improve their future prospects. We give them the environment they need to improve their opportunities in life.

Long-Term Impact

Our work affects both the short term and long term. With our support 200 children & young people will overcome personal and social challenges and make better life choices for their future. In the last 5 years we've engaged over 3,000 children & young people and gave 287 inner city children the opportunity to escape inner-city life. In 2015 for the first time 10 young people completed the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Awards and a further 16 received BTEC accreditation via our MechaniX programme
