We are working with residents across Regents Park Estate to benefit fellow residents and the health and wellbeing across the estate – we have young people aged 12-24 and community members 24+ – sometimes the groups work separately, on other projects they work together.
We meet every week on a Wednesday at Dick Collins Hall (Ground floor Kirkfell on Robert St) and you are more than welcome to join us too! We also host monthly socials to bring residents together to be able to tell their stories, voice concerns and provide peer support and hopefully do more community action!
Contact coordinator Ellie.Rudd@fya.org.uk or text/whatsapp or call 07923849277. Champions are currently meeting every Wednesday at Dick Collins Hall, opposite Borrowdale – Robert Street NW1 3FB London – bottom of the new block.
We have brilliant partners and supporting organisations including Regents Park Tenants Association, Bengali Workers Association, West Euston Partnership, Hopscotch, Regents Place, Third Age Project, Camden Participation team, Central St Martins Public Studio, Camden Tenants Participation and Housing and many more specific to projects.
We a group of young champions also organising activities on behalf of the community!!
Aged 11-24 living in Regents Park Estate? Join us 2nd June to find out more – you can help plan an event or activity to take place in July or support a campaign to improve local sports facilities! Maybe you have an idea YOU would like to see happen to benefit local residents?
Young people will be able to earn AQA accredited experience and certificates and make a positive difference in their community, for now, from their own homes.
