Together with the local community we enable this vibrant part of London to Thrive The Westway Trust Movement is an online platform to support projects delivered in Kensington and Chelsea that will make a demonstrable impact in our priority areas of health, economic opportunity and cultural diversity. We want to incubate and support innovate ideas from local social enterprises, charitable, voluntary and community organisation working within RBKC, with a particular focus on communities living in North Kensington, in and around the Westway. We are also keen to encourage local groups to work collaboratively in bringing proposals together.

Our Journey

The Nucleo Project Equipment Appeal
The Nucleo Project Equipment Appeal joined Westway Trust Communities1 week ago

The Nucleo Project is transforming the lives of approximately 300 children disadvantaged in North Kensington, one of the poorest areas in the country. Underpinned by the latest academic research, our project improves the personal, social and academic outcomes of these young people dramatically through intense after-school music lessons four times a week. To help everyone, we need to provide musical instruments to those who cannot afford them – home practice is an integral part of the programme. In addition, there is other equipment, such as music stands, that we need to provide. Lucy Maguire, who set up The Nucleo Project after studying and teaching the world-famous El Sistema in Venezuela, takes great care when choosing what to buy. Particular attention is paid to cost and value-for-money. Our children are winning medals in national competitions and everyone taking exams got a Merit or Distinction last year. Please help us continue developing this inspiring success story.
