A group of 20 members of staff and parents have pledged to join me in a 100km ride around the Inner Circle of Regent's Park. We are fundraising for forthcoming family support initiatives at The Winch, our community partners at Swiss Cottage.
Since 1973, The Winch has worked across North Camden to improve the life chances of children, young people and families. To achieve this, the teams address the inequalities and issues that diminish young people's life chances. These issues include poverty, social exclusion, education and employability, homelessness, violence against young people and the causes and consequences of mental ill health. The Winch provides services that build strengths, skills and belonging.
The Family Support team creates opportunities for young parents living in areas of deprivation to give their babies and toddlers a healthy and safe start in life. The team nurtures children's critical early development and builds communities of peer support for new parents. They deliver open sessions as well as targeted support programmes in partnership with specialist agencies, to promote participants' agency and their economic, social and mental wellbeing. The Hall would like to support the work of the Family Support team in connecting people to create a kinder and more resourceful neighbourhood as we head into the unknowns of 2022.
Over many years of community partnership with The Winch, The Hall has supported advancing the participation, agency and influence of children, young people and families facing systemic disadvantage within our locality. Working together, we can help disadvantaged young people and their families in our neighbourhood to succeed by offering the opportunity and support that they deserve to live a fulfilling life.
