Supporting community-led projects to help your local area recover from the COVID-19 crisis
Their Community, school, home and families are the main areas that assist with our children’s wellbeing but the issues that lie in front of us cannot be ignored, hence why we have come up with a solution to tackle both emotional and social wellbeing of our young people within the community. Post covid we aim to with the support of the councils start rebuilding are high streets and support the youth of the future economy today. Our team of mentors and experienced in working with young people in various capacities and therefore bring with them a wealth of knowledge. In which combined have enabled us to put together this campaign. With the rate of knife crime increasing, the action is needed. Challenging behaviour is becoming prominent and affecting our young people at home, in school and in their family day to day lives which in turn has a negative impact on our community.We viewed the building in February 2021 and spoke to the agents about the commercial lease terms.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
It offers a holistic service to young people, helping them with the crucial areas in life that are not taught in school or often at home. It also offers them a haven to channel themselves into more positive aspects allowing them to be free and talk openly about themselves. Research shows our young people more often than not they feel as if they have no options and definitely don’t have a voice. This is what our organisation is being designed to create positive change Our long term goals are to provide and source employment for our young people and also equip them with skills to live independently . There is no other service that we have come across that offers a 360 wraparound service to young people with a variety of options all under one roof. This could be life changing for a lot of our young people. Having access to advising and workshops on a consistent basis will enable them to better themselves in life. The main objective is to provide young people with the skills they need.
Steps to get it done:
In January 2021 a Local Petition was signed of 100 names for the Old Natwest Bank Building on Acton high street to convert in to youth community complex.And many more to include the whole community and offer our young people a better understanding of what can be achieved with the right tools. Young people need to enhance themselves within the local community and also to help minimise anti-social behaviour issues which they encounter. https://www.change.org/p/ealing-council-community-building/u/26583593 - Local Petition
