We would like to thank the many partner agencies from all over Camden for their active involvement in our projects. Much of our work would not be possible without the support of partners from both the voluntary and statutory sectors. Below we have list the main partner agencies we have worked with over the last year.
Bengali Workers Association/ Surma Youth Project: We have been working very closely with the Surma Youth Project for a number of years. Over the last year, we have run accredited training with young people around healthy living issues, organised a film project, supported a number of residentials and involved young people in a drugs peer education programme.
Castlehaven Community Association:We worked with Castlehaven in hosting a Camden Unity Cup match day on their local pitch.
Coram’s Fields: We are currently working in partnership with Coram’s Fields Youth Centre and their arts project. Our Drugs Project has been meeting up at Coram’s for the past few months and have designed and build ‘The Game’, a three dimensional board game to both inform young people about drugs and evaluate their drugs knowledge.
FWD (Camden’s Drugs and Alcohol Service for Young people): FYA and FWD have been working together on the Drugs Peer Education Project. FWD has helped plan and set up the programme, delivered drugs awareness training to some groups within the project as well as supported workshops with young people. FYA and FWD have been working together for a few years now and are building on their partnership to help deliver bigger and better projects for the future.
