Camden Community Impacts

Camden Community Impacts

We’re investing up to £1.6 million and working with local voluntary and community organisations to tackle some of the most complex social issues in Camden.

We’re investing in our voluntary and community sector through our Camden Community Impacts scheme so we can bring together local skills and knowledge to make a real and lasting impact. 

The projects and organisations working on them are: 

  • Youth offending
    New Horizon Youth Centre and Project 10/10, along with Kent University, aims to curb rates of reoffending by working intensively with young people who commit the most offences in Camden, both in the community and while they are in custody. The Young Camden Foundation will also partner with organisations such as the Roundhouse, working with our communities to develop innovative ideas to prevent youth crime in Camden through early intervention. This work will feed into the Youth Safety Taskforce, set up to tackle youth violence in the borough. 
  • Rough sleeping 
    Somers Town Community Association, the St Pancras and Somers Town Living Centre, C4WS Homeless Project and Central Saint Martins will carry out research to better understand the experiences of rough sleepers, giving them a voice and finding new ways to support people off the streets. This will link in with the council’s ‘Routes off the streets’ work to improve specialist services for rough sleepers, including women and girls, and people who identify as LGBT.
  • Emotional health and wellbeing
    Mind in Camden, Rethink Mental Illness, Holy Cross Centre Trust, C4 (Camden Community Centres Consortium) and Voluntary Action Camden will work with our communities to improve understanding of mental health needs in local areas, and develop community-led action plans. 
  • Supporting people in the community
    The Centre for Independent Living, a collection of voluntary sector organisations based at the new Greenwood Centre, will help local organisations to access £100,000 funding available for projects that break down barriers older and disabled people face in accessing community facilities.
