Camden Community Impacts

Camden Community Impacts

We’re investing up to £1.6 million and working with local voluntary and community organisations to tackle some of the most complex issues in Camden.

The Camden Community Impacts scheme focuses on youth offending, rough sleeping, emotional health and wellbeing, and supporting people with social care needs in the community.

These are long-standing issues that we know can’t be solved by any one organisation, so we’ve been developing ideas with a wide range of partners, including the Camden Community Centres’ Consortium (C4), Age UK Camden, the Roundhouse and New Horizon Youth Centre. 

The projects we’re funding as a result of these conversations will bring the skills and creativity of a range of local organisations together in new ways to tackle these issues:

  • Youth offending: £200,000 to support community responses to serious youth violence in Camden, and £200,000 for a pilot demonstrating the role the voluntary sector can take in reducing youth reoffending.
  • Rough sleeping: Up to £70,000 will go towards an engagement project to understand the experiences of people rough sleeping, and give them a voice so that they can be better supported off the streets.
  • Emotional health and wellbeing: £200,000 towards a partnership to encourage residents to build their personal resilience and independence, linking them to opportunities and activities in their community.
  • Supporting people in the community: Up to £100,000 will go towards a fund the voluntary sector can offer to ideas that break down the barriers older and disabled people face in accessing community facilities. 
In summer 2018 we will announce the organisations that will be working on these projects. If you have any questions email vcs@camden.gov.uk
