Planning Voice 21 Mar 2017
The project will support and empower local people from disadvantaged communities in north Southwark to influence physical developments affecting their local environment. It will enable residents to be effectively involved in planning decisions and ensure that they are supported with mitigation measures where affected negatively by developments. A specialist caseworker will provide group training sessions on planning and licensing issues for local residents. It will work on an outreach basis in the premises of partner agencies and local groups. 10 ‘expert’ volunteers, largely drawn from the local community, will support the work of the project and ensure skills transfer for the future.

The Posh Club 21 Mar 2017
The Posh Club, run by the Vauxhall Tavern’s ‘Duckie’ team, is a daytime performance club for older people. The tongue-in-cheek 1940’s afternoon tea events feature live performances by drag artists, up-and-coming performers, and involve waiters in black tie, vintage crockery, and an in-house pianist. Participants are encouraged to dress up and not take themselves too seriously. Currently being delivered, with great success, in Hackney and Crawley, UStSC funding is bringing The Posh Club to Southwark.
Bump to Babe Project – Work Placement 21 Mar 2017
Child poverty is high in north Southwark and this project seeks to reduce its negative impact among higher risk households. Good early years development is essential for successful life progression. ‘Bump to Babe’ trains local volunteers who build relationships with, and provide support to, new parents who are particularly high risk, helping them negotiate the significant challenges they experience in the first months of having a baby. It particularly helps to ensure a good bond essential for healthy development and emotional health. UStSC funding is taking the existing tried and tested ‘Bump to Babe’ model one step further by providing training and paid work experience for the local volunteers – paving the way for family support careers.
Sticking with Young People 21 Mar 2017
Many young people growing up in Bermondsey face ongoing challenges and obstacles that negatively impact their health, wellbeing and development. These stem from factors including poverty and worklessness amongst parents, lack of family stability and positive male role models, exposure to violence, abuse, alcohol and substance misuse – and stressful life circumstances. In an environment of reducing local services for young people, the project will continue delivery of effective and innovative youth work to 1,000 vulnerable young people who access the Salmon Centre over a 2 year period. It will also develop a range of new interventions that respond to the changing needs of young people.
Migrant and ethnic businesses are an integral part of the Elephant and Castle community; they provide goods at reasonable prices, services in specific languages, act as information centres and meeting points for the local population. Regeneration plans may lead to commercial displacement and further marginalisation of the local community. The project will provide tailored ‘business readiness’ support to the small migrant and ethnic businesses affected by the regeneration. It will increase their ability to take advantage of discounted retail rents within the new shopping centre and/or successful relocation. This project addresses a widespread challenge – in Southwark and beyond – and has the potential to be rolled out to other areas.
Young Marketeers 21 Mar 2017
The successful Young Marketeers programme has been running since 2013. Over this period it has reached over 10,000 children in north Southwark and Bermondsey, with £3,018 raised for FareShare (enabling them to produce 12,072 meals for vulnerable families). Working through schools to grow and cook food for sale, the programme addresses several important local issues – it brings the local community into Borough Market, and works towards reduction of health inequalities and childhood obesity by increasing knowledge of healthy eating and cooking. It also helps to reduce food poverty and waste, and builds trading and entrepreneurial skills for young people. School Food Matters will build on its success to run 5 new sales – one of which will focus on celebrating diversity across north Southwark’s diverse population.
The Great Get Together 2017 03 May 2017
