Building a London-wide network of Little Villages to support families (360G-phf-31226)
Mum of three Sophia Parker believes that it takes a village to raise a child and set up Little Village in early 2016 to support to local families in need. It uses a model similar to a foodbank, providing clothes, toys and equipment for children aged 0-5. Sophia is an experienced social policy professional, and completed a Clore Fellowship in 2015. She would like to use her professional skills to evolve the Little Village offer, developing the model, expanding into other areas and growing its network of volunteers to create small, warm communities of families supporting each other.
