Thanks to the William Wates Memorial Trust we have established our two LifeHUBs in White City and Townmead & Hurlingham helping some the most deprived children in London.
Our LifeHUBs use a combination of sport and life skills to support children and families fulfil their potential and improve life outcomes. We delivered a fantastic range of sports and dance programmes which ended with kayak trips on the River Thames.
Our life skills courses in schools and housing estates in DIY, finance, cooking and bike maintenance increased employability and confidence as well as to help reduce levels of crime within the community by giving people a safe and fun place to be.
Across both sites, we have seen a decrease in anti-social behaviour within the areas, but most importantly have received wonderful feedback from both the parents and the 249 children.
The WWMT funding has given these children and young people opportunities they wouldn’t have had.
