Since December 2017 we have been working closely with the Leighton College at Elfrida Rathbone Camden; We have been delivering weekly sessions to young people aged 16-24 with SEN & Disabilities, with majority being under the Autistic spectrum. Our feedback and results have been outstanding so far; With students building relationships with others, developing their confidence and self-awareness, and showing changes in their college behaviours including class work.
We are now looking to carry on delivering sessions and working with learners that have SEN & Disabilities in Camden. We will carry on delivering sessions at Elfrida Rathbone Camden for the rest of the year.
We are also currently in talks with Swiss Cottage School and various clubs and centres in Camden including The National Autistic Society, for us to start working with them and delivering sessions to their learners or programme users.

Sessions, between age groups 6 to 12. Who were turning up to the session feeling hungry so we provided healthy snacks.
After notifying our safeguarding leader; she contacted parents and schools. Due to research we found that most low income families rely on free school meals, and during school holidays struggle to provide a healthy lunchtime meal. Which we have found is one of the key factors that cause inactive young people, and one of the many roots to isolation during holidays.
