Have Your Say!! 
We are consulting local residents of Regents Park Estate to find out what YOUR priorities are for the next year – The Community Champions will then use this research to inform any community led action they create!

We have been working closely with partners Bengali Workers Association to deliver hot meals to vulnerable community individuals and households during lockdown. Other partners such as Hopscotch Women’s Centre, One Housing Esther Randall Court and KCBNA members have also received meals. We successfully supported 14 deliveries between May and December 2020!
FYA young people from our regent park families have been able to receive meals and we have supported volunteer procurement and communication with volunteers.
 
Youth Virtual Volunteering
We have a great virtual volunteering opportunity on Mondays for young people aged 11-24 to lead some of the response and planning for the community, during this crisis but also as we are able to bring the community back together in various ways.
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.
They might plan an online/physical event for the community, work out how we can reach more residents to find out what they need and listen to their ideas and opinions, help other young people and community members.
If you are interested whatsapp/text Ellie, or DM us on insta @fyaonroad 

About Us
We have received some funding from Camden Council for the Regents Park Community Champions programme! Three estates across Camden are taking part in this incredible project to enable, empower and connect people within our estates, and maybe even across communities.The other organisations involved are South Hampstead and Kilburn Community Partnership (SHAK) and Elfrida Rthbone.
However, just as the project was about to start, the COVID 19 outbreak occurred across the world. Within days of government guidance increasing physical and social distancing,  mutual aid groups and brilliant community action popped up everywhere. Community organisers were stepping in left right and centre to try to ensure that the most vulnerable and isolated in our communities were not forgotten, and this has only increased during and post lockdown.
We are now planning how we can continue to support our local community, both in relation to Covid-19 and its impacts, but also more widely to address other issues and bring the community together.
For more information on the project or to find out how to get involved: contact Ellie Rudd ellie.rudd@fya.org.uk or 07923849277
