We enable young people and adults living on and around Alexandra and Ainsworth estates to discover their talents, passion, skills and confidence to overcome the barriers they face to social and economic inclusion.
We run two programmes:
- ARC. The ARC supports young people nine years and over, and adults as well, by helping them to achieve their potential as confident, capable young adults through a structured programme of activities ranging from football, music technology, dance, art and much more! The ARC is also a safe place to meet friends, develop activities and projects with peers, build relationships with adults as well as get help and advice. Read more.
- Shell. The South Hampstead Education and Life-long Learning (Shell) Centre is a vibrant community learning centre with a difference. Thanks to money from Camden’s Neighborhood Renewal Fund and with funding from the Government’s UK on Line initiative, a disused launderette on the South Hampstead Housing Estate was converted into this community resource with fast broadband Internet connection and modern technological facilities. Learn a range of skills in informal ‘drop-in’ sessions. We offer free courses, learning activities, services and information in a friendly supportive community atmosphere. Read more.
People age 19+ who face barriers to digital and economic inclusion are welcome to the Shell Centre.
