Partnership Research & Development
Skill: Relationship Building
Project Duration: 16 hours
Cause: Community & Economic Development
Who are we looking for: We’re looking for an organised volunteer with a knack for identifying partnerships and building relationships.
Project brief: Help the Community Trust in researching local organisations and projects that could work alongside each other in targeting the various groups so that no one is left behind in the regeneration process. By working in partnership, these organisations can give voice to all communities in Stockwell Park and the surrounding areas. A key point for developing these partnerships is to think beyond the voluntary sector and bring together new organisations, businesses, schools to create a true cross section of society. Further to the research piece, any suggestions towards successful partnership development are welcome!
Who you'll be supporting: The Community Trust works with young people and vulnerable groups in and around the Stockwell Park Estate in South London. The charity runs early years support and community centre. An internet cafe that is free at the point of access is open from 10:00 am - 10:00pm, 7 days a week. Advice and employment support available. A range of physical activities for residents are all free of charge. Local people use the centre for family parties and events such a funerals and weddings.
