Following the increase in youth violence in our local area Highgate New Town Community has partnered with Kentish Town Community Centre and Castlehaven Community Centre to deliver an innovative new project called ‘Voices not Violence’ .
In Highgate the project will be delivered from January 2020 and will run though to April 2021. Over a 10 week blocks, youth workers from Kentish Town Youth Project will travel up to Highgate to work with the young people in the local area. The project is part social action, part skills development, allowing the young people to increase their confidence and self esteem whilst recording their ideas onto film.
Jamie Weight coordinator of the project said: “We ran a pilot of this project in 2019. The young people really liked it. We have a film for the project and 30 young people trained up in first aid and self defence. Not bad for a budget of £6K!”
This phase of the project is part funded by Young Camden Foundation and Camden Council through the Community Investment Levy. For more details contact firstname.lastname@example.org
