Crystal Palace Foundation is delighted to announce a new partnership with L&Q Housing Association, London’s largest social landlord.
The Croydon Breaking Barriers programme is designed to be an inspirational programme of change for L&Q residents aged 16-24 who are out of work and may be at risk of not fulfilling their potential. Our Breaking Barriers Programme will deliver
- Access to high quality activities in sport and physical activity delivered by professional Crystal Palace Foundation community coaches.
- Intensive one to one mentoring by qualified youth/community workers to help young people believe in themselves and their abilities
- Accredited training and National Governing Body qualifications in youth work and community sports
- Volunteering opportunities and the prospect of gaining employment as a sessional community coach with Crystal Palace Foundation and other community sports organisations in Croydon
Mathew Randle, L&Q Community Investment Manager said:
“We chose to hold the project in Croydon as the borough was heavily affected by last year’s riots and Croydon has one of the largest youth populations in the capital.
“The Breaking Barriers programme will give 40 young people the opportunity to improve their skills and employability and make a positive contribution to their community.
“At L&Q we are committed to creating places where people want to live and through the L&Q Foundation we are able to fund innovative projects to improve the communities we live in. “
