How Can I Help?
SUPPORTERS & FUNDERS:
DONATE TO OUR COMMUNITY FUND
The Helping Hands Community Fund is a community-led grants initiative that will support youth organisations and individuals with funding to deliver life-changing projects for young people. This will focus on opportunities that offer prevention and intervention for youth violence in the community.
In 2021, Young Westminster Foundation worked in partnership with member and partner organisations to conduct a consultation with the local community to understand the impact of youth violence in North West Westminster.
Responses were gathered using a quantitive survey with parents and adults, and focus groups with young people in youth club settings. These findings will be valuable in informing projects being developed. The consultation was generously supported and analysed by the Behave Team at Total Media, a behavioural planning agency and key YWF partner.
With thanks to Westminster City Council, Avenues Youth Project, Future Men, Queen’s Park Community Council and Westbourne Park Family Centre.
