IN OUR HANDS TRAINING PROGRAMME

ROLE MODELS

Role models have been a core part of our approach/work. We define a role model as someone with lived experience of crime, abuse or disadvantage who has suffered their negative consequences and who strived for positive change and wants to support at-risk young people. We have run support programmes for role models, trained them in youth work and creative skills on our projects, given them work experience and helped them gain employment.

For the past 5 years we’ve hosted an annual basketball tournament on Dollis Valley Estate. The one day community event has become a destination for young people at the end of the summer holidays and features live music, BBQ and a pop-up nail bar.
