Planned new services 2018-21
Please support us with funding for one of these projects
After School Clubs in English, Maths and Science
£15,000 a year will:
Help us to support struggling children and teenagers, to improve their life chances with further education. Many local families cannot afford these opportunities and without support for these classes, their further education cannot take place. The cost covers the support provided by three tutors.
Community Lunch Club
£7,000 a year will:
Support the cooks wage. Your funding will keep the overall cost of the meal low, so all are able to enjoy.
Many people, both old and young never have a hot cooked meal, sitting at a table, sharing company and friendships. It is impossible to stress enough how important and needed this service is. Lunch clubs help to restore hope to the forgotten and lonely, those on very low incomes, who often must make hard choices between heating the home or eating. Price for lunch will be £2.50, for a fantastic meal. We cannot run this much needed service without funding support. By donating, you too are welcome to join us for lunch at one of our venues, see the benefits of this service and meet our dedicated team.
Disadvantaged Youth and Young People
The New Beginnings Hub and Training Academy
£16,000 will pay for a project coordinator
St Radigunds has developed a new programme to deliver special support to particularly disadvantaged Youth and Young People in our community. Our programme is focussed upon the need to enable each young person to confront the problems and issues they face, and to give them a new start, thereby enabling them to make the transition to a fulfilled and successful adulthood.
Our programme is designed to address the needs of disadvantaged young people, for example:
- Those who are long term unemployed and are considered to be furthest away from the labour market.
- Ex-offenders or those at risk of offending.
- Those who are at the starting or completing a community sentence.
- Young people who have mental health and wellbeing issues.
- Those who are isolated and vulnerable, with no safe home base, sofa surfing or street homeless, perhaps in severe financial difficulty as a compounding disadvantage.
- Young Women whose lives have been constrained by caring roles at home, are still constrained, or single mothers.
- Young people who have left the safety of foster care or are about to do so.
Education and Schools
£12,000 is the cost for the coordinator for one year
Schools who have no woodwork spaces and classes are welcome to make a daytime bookings for classes. These allow children to learn new skills away from school, and to take home items they are proud to have made. All our staff teams are DBS checked and work within Camden Child and Adult protection polices. Each session can take 15 children. We also welcome home taught children.
After School Clubs
Why not come along to our after school clubs from 3.30pm onwards. Parents are welcome to join in. These classes allow time for you to make small or longer term projects. Come and learn maths as you measure items, plan your design on paper and then make it, in a fun, stimulating and safe environment.
Children and Adults with learning difficulties
Children and adults with learning difficulties or wheelchair based are welcome. These are some of are more popular classes, ask for details about what is on offer.
Woodwork education parties
Why not have a family day on a Saturday and invite some friends. You can all make one large item or bring things from home that need repair. You’re welcome to book and use the woodwork room with our team. We can help you plan your day. Education parties are great for school projects and too.
Our team has a wealth of experience working with children and adults in an artistic environment. We are passionate about personal service and endeavour to give our visitors a unique and creative experience with a friendly touch. Our aim is to offer everyone in the community a fun, safe, and creative space for children, friends and families to come and enjoy quality time together whilst creating wood objects to treasure
It will come as no surprises that St Radigunds is ranked one of the most deprived areas in the UK. Our aim is to change this working with a number of partners over the next 5 years…
To do this we aim to create a number of key projects with focused outcomes to improve people life chances and opportunities
If you feel able to support one of our projects with funding we welcome your support. Please contact Andrew Sanalitro, the Chair of Trustees, for further details email@example.com
Individual support and other funding sources
We aim to build deep, long-term relationships with individuals, trusts and foundations who can support us. We value your advice and kindness, helping us maintain a stable path for future services and people.
We also host regular events and where appropriate, can arrange for you to visit a project you have supported, so you can see first-hand the difference your commitment has made.
