High Trees Community Development Trust, Rathbone Society & Norwood Community Group Services Link- Up
High Trees Community Development Trust, Rathbone Society and Norwood Community Group Services have joined forces to facilitate an inspirational employability workshop to benefit the young people who visit the Old Library Hub in West Norwood.
On 31st March 2015 Eamon Madden (Inspirational Youth) delivered an employability workshop at the Old Library Hub in West Norwood in conjunction with HTCDT, RS and NCGS, this is the first of many collaborations between these organisations.
Those in attendance included Margret Pierre-Jarrett and Kyle Gooding of HTCDT, Charlene King of RS, and Jamal Rahman of NCGS.
The aim of this partnership is to utilise each other’s resources in order to facilitate quality projects that add value to the respective communities we serve. The locations identified are situated in the Tulse Hill and the West Norwood areas and the intention is to bring young people together from those areas to break down perceived barriers.
Our organisations are all commissioned providers with many years of experience between us, this will result in specialist service providers working together, enabling users to access a range of projects and recreational services locally.
Margaret Pierre-Jarrett, Director of High Trees Community Development Trust said “the workshop gave young people the space to explore their future options and understand and decide the steps needed in order to achieve their goals. Participants said they felt much more prepared for work at the end of the session. I am very excited about this new partnership with Rathbone and Norwood Community Group; the synergy created by our organisations coming together will provide an extended quality offer to our service users”.
