    Kitchen Social

    This is an initiative from the Mayor’s fund.  Kitchen Social works with mainly open access, local community-based organisations, to create an environment where children, young people and their families and carers can feel comfortable to play, explore new ideas, make new friends, learn and get a well-balanced meal during the holidays. 

    They are currently seeing organisations to set themselves up as hubs and be willing to provide 20 days of food provision throughout the year. To help hubs reach the right level of readiness and quality a support package which includes Holiday Provision Handbook and Training, cookbook, and a grant of £1200 per year for three years will be provided.

    They have just 5 places available for their November 28 Training – so get in touch soon if this is of interest.

    UCL x Amnesty International – Rights and Activism Club

    The Amnesty International Society at University College London has set up an outreach programme. Created and run by UCL students, its aim is to teach young people, aged 11+, about human rights issues and abuses that are taking place around the world in order for them to become more knowledgeable, as well as making them aware of their own rights and teaching them to respect those of others. The aim is to encourage young people to think creatively and come up with campaigns; including things such as letter writing, information stalls or art exhibitions to show solidarity and spread awareness.
