Coin Street Community Programme Pilots
As part of the focus on our community programmes we are developing some new initiatives which will enhance the existing services we provide for local people. Initially these are being trialled as pilot programmes and will be run in collaboration with partners across the neighbourhood including SE1 United, Age UK and Blackfriars Settlement. As part of the initiative we are taking part in a number of outreach events to highlight the pilots and engage with potential participants. Recent events have included a fun day at the Peabody Blackfriars Estate and a sports open day at Tabard Gardens.
Our community programmes team develop, deliver and manage a range of youth groups; sports, arts and leisure programmes and events for local people. Currently we are trialling the programmes Upgrade Yourself, which provides education and employment support for young people, Your Choices, a programme designed to help young people aged 13-17 make better choices, and more. With further trial programmes to come we are hopeful that following the completion of the pilot period we will be able to roll out a full programme of events.
