We are delighted to announce that we have been successful with the Mayors Young Londoners Fund which will see us work in partnership with Isledon, Islington Council, Metropolitan Police, Targeted Youth Support and Community Safety Teams to deliver a ‘Nex Gen’ programme of estate-based community engagement activities which will support young people at risk of criminal activity and exclusion to improve skills, qualifications and help them to make better, positive life choices.
Our project will be aimed at young people living on 3 large ‘hotspot’, housing estates: Andover, Marquess and Mayville. Nex Gen will be a targeted/comprehensive programme of youth work, sporting activities, training/education to support young people at risk of criminal activity to achieve positive outcomes, engage better with existing services and reduce community tension.
By investing in projects, and young people, that are dedicated to giving young Londoners an opportunity to get involved in positive activities, we can work to help every child and teenager at risk off the streets, and away from the dangers of crime.
