We want to channel Lewisham's creativity to develop new ideas for the Boroughs community spaces
The exact location of this project is still undetermined. We intend to secure premises in Lewisham over the coming weeks and will keep you informed! In the unlikely event we cannot secure a location, your pledges will not be collected. We want to be a space where the homeless people in the community can stay, receive food and advice to help them get jobs and accommodation. Also connect them to other services for further support. We want to open our doors to the homeless people in our community on Friday’s and provide them with meals and advice. We will offer training for everyone in the community and have activities run in the centre as well. We want to employ local people from the community to work at the centre and work with local businesses.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Our project focuses on the process of building the centre as much as the outcome. The project will employ people in the community. We give people access to many different opportunities, volunteering, training and activities. We will decrease the homelessness in the borough. We want our community to be strongly apart of the process of us creating this space. We will listen to people’s suggestions and recommendations for the centres or what they might want to be trained in. Also including them in building and design aspect such as painting murals on the wall of the centre that reflect the community.
Steps to get it done:
