Location

Situation

The Cardinal Hume Centre is located next to one of the most deprived areas in London, with child poverty as high as 60% according to recent estimates. Low income families living in overcrowded and temporary accommodation struggle with day to day necessities, and children of all ages suffer the consequences. Their schoolwork is impacted by home situations, they can't take advantage of opportunities for extra-curricular work and face barriers to development socially, creatively and educationally.

Solution

We will renovate the ground floor of our building to create a new collaborative space for young people aged 0-19 and their families - with a green outdoor area, a digital zone, and private facilities for one to one work. The new space will be flexible and open, with easy access for those with mobility issues. Every week we will run a wide range of activities designed for different age groups to work together, bringing in specialists partners to offer exciting opportunities for young people.
