Celebrating 100 Years of Women having the Vote

As part of our women's empowerment support, we held a series of activities to celebrate the Centenary of women having the right to vote in the UK. The project included the creation of a celebration display, showcasing the achievements of local women in politics and civil life, along with a free film screening and talks from local female activitists, culminating in a range of bespoke support encouraging and empowering local women to participate in local community campaigns and political life.

Come Together

An 18-month project providing engagement and support for young people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and a range of learning difficulties and physical disabilities. Delivered in partnership with the Inclusive Hub at the World-famous Rotunda Amateur Boxing Club, the project provides physical activities for young people based around movement and boxing training, to engage young people with their peers in small groups, encourage friendships and boost confidence and aspiration. The project also bring parents, carers and families together to share experiences, discuss issues and develop solutions, or simple have a break for a couple of hours and watch their loved ones participating and having fun.

Local People; Local Solutions

A project supporting people in disadvantaged communities to address issues that affect them in their own lives through group action. The project empowers individuals, helps them to come together and form action groups, identify issues, plan for action and deliver results. The support may include the formalisation of groups to establish social enterprises or charities, register assets as Assets of Community Value, raise funds for project delivery along with a range of other support as required.

Moving Forward
A project engaging local unemployed individuals to inspire and motivate them and support them towards achiving their goals. The project includes engagement through a range of exciting activities such as dance, boxing, outdoor pursuits, along with talks from high-profile local individuals who have overcome disadvantage to achieve great things. We support people through self-assessment, goal-setting, planning for success, and help participants access appropriate support for basic needs such as housing, income maximisation, childcare etc, as well as access to formal progression routes such as education, training, apprenticeships and employment or self-employment.
