Class                 Part 1                                     Date: 18 November 2009


1      Purpose

       This report seeks to inform the Mayor of progress made by Local Assemblies in
       particular Crofton Park, Evelyn, Ladywell, Perry Vale, Sydenham and
       Whitefoot. Contained in the report is the assembly action plan for Evelyn. It
       recommends that the Mayor approves the Mayor’s Fund allocations detailed in
       section 3 below.

2      Policy Context

2.1    Section 138 of the Local Government and Public Involvement in
       Health Act came into effect on April 1st 2009. It makes it a duty on all local
       authorities to involve local representatives when carrying out 'any of its
       functions' by providing information, consulting or ‘involving in another way’.
       The Local Assemblies programme is a key aid to the council in fulfilling this
       new duty.

2.2    In May 2007 the Mayor’s Commission on empowering communities and
       neighbourhoods recommended that the London Borough of Lewisham
       introduce local ward assemblies for each of the borough’s 18 wards. The
       Commission believed that these localised bodies, defined by the active
       involvement of the ward councillors, would enable the people living and
       working in each area to have a stronger and more direct influence in shaping
       their local community, supporting an ongoing process for identifying and
       resolving local concerns and implementing local solutions.

2.3    The local assemblies programme is helping to deliver the Lewisham
       Sustainable Community Strategy priority outcome `Empowered and
       responsible - where people can be actively involved in their local area and
       contribute to supportive communities.’ The assemblies programme also
       supports the delivery of LAA target NI4 - percentage of residents who feel they
       are able to influence decisions locally.

2.4    The work of the Local Assemblies is directly linked to the Council’s priority for
       community leadership and empowerment.

2.5    The Local Assemblies programme was established in March 2008 and each
       assembly has met between four and seven times since then. In October 2008
      the Mayor announced that £50,000 would be allocated to each of the 18 wards
      to enable assemblies to propose projects that would support the delivery of
      their local action plans and encourage residents to work with the council to find
      local solutions to local problems.

4     Local Assemblies Programme

4.1   The first local assembly was held at Sydenham on the 6 March 2008. Since
      then, all 18 of Lewisham's local assemblies have met between 4 and 7 times.
      Anyone living, working or learning in the ward is encouraged to attend
      assembly meetings. Additionally a number of targeted pieces of work have
      taken place in wards to attract a broader cross section of the community.
      Assemblies are able to influence decision making in a number of ways and are
      encouraged to work with the council and other partners to influence
      mainstream service delivery. A principle route for this is by the articulation of
      ward priorities for change at the Link Officer group. This group has
      representation from officers across the council as well as from the Police and
      the Lewisham Primary Care Trust.

10.1    Proposals relating to any balance of the funds available for these wards will be
        brought to subsequent Mayor and Cabinet meetings. All recommendations in
        section 3 of this report can be contained within the Mayor’s Fund budget
        allocation.

11      Legal Implications

11.1    As the Local Assemblies do not have decision making powers under the
        Council’s constitution, it is for the Mayor to take the decision on the
        recommendations as to how the sums from the Mayor’s Fund will be spent,
        taking into consideration the views of the relevant assembly.

11.2    Where funding is being awarded to any voluntary organisation or community
        group, the conditions attached to such funding must comply with the Council’s
        requirements relating to accountability including monitoring and auditing where
        appropriate.

12.     Crime and Disorder Implications

        Reducing crime and anti social behaviour is a key priority for many ward
        assemblies. Links have been forged between the Local Assemblies
        Programme and Safer Neighbourhood Panels and closer partnership working
        is planned to ensure coordination in this area. In this report there are a number
        of projects with a young people and crime diversion focus and a project
        delivered by the local Safer Neighbourhood Panel working with local
        businesses in Ladywell.

13.     Equality Implications
      A significant number of projects contained within this report will have a positive
      impact on equalities and cohesion. These include intergenerational activities,
      projects that bring different sectors of the community together in volunteering
      activities, projects aimed at refugees and additional provision for young people
      and the young disabled people .

14.   Environmental Implications

      A number of projects may assist in maintaining good environments through
      their focus on young people and crime diversion. The mural project in particular
      should assist with reduction in graffiti.

15.   Conclusion

      The Local Assemblies are providing residents with opportunities to identify and
      resolve local concerns and implement local solutions. Proposals for using the
      £50,000 Mayor’s Fund ward allocation are demonstrating what can be
      achieved when the council works closely in partnership with local residents.

    host a variety of web pages including: an introduction to the area and its
      opportunities; local businesses; community and voluntary organisations; venues;
      young peoples and elders pages; Safer Neighbourhood’s Team; local services;
      events and Local Assembly news
    host monitored interactive forums to air local issues and promote local activities
    provide links to local institutions including the council website and service
      providers to Crofton Park

The proposal is to allocate £5,000 to cover the development and running of the website
for design and implementation

Management responsibility of Croftonpark.com
Finalising ongoing management responsibilities and the management of contents will be
led by the Croftonpark.com steering group and St Hilda’s, supported by the Local
Assembly. It is the intention to create an ongoing management body. The steering group
currently consists of four Local Assembly coordinating group volunteers including Fr
Bates, one member of the group is from St Saviours church. A further able member of St
Hilda’s has offered to be a member. A constitution and management document will be
drawn up by this group.


In the long-term, it is proposed that the website be made sustainable by charging a small
fee for local businesses to advertise on the webpage, to cover the on going hosting fees
and management costs. Provision of email addresses @croftonpark.com and other on
line methods would be used to ensure the site can continue unaided .

Financial responsibility and auditing
St Hilda's will hold the fi nances - and they will be audited under SORP policies
With church accounts in the Croftonpark community link restricted fund - they will be held
as restricted funds for Croftonpark .com.

What does the project want to achieve and which of the assembly pr iorities does it
address?

One of the assembly’s priorities is Community Cohesion, feedback from assembly
meetings and community cohesion working group meetings showed that there was a
need to create a sense of identity for the Crofton Park ward and that there is a lack of
awareness amongst residents and visitors about the types of community facilities and
groups operating in the area, as well as the variety of local businesses in the ward.

It was a proposed that a medium was required to promote the ward, share information
                                   Mayor’s Fund Project Proposals – Crofton Park
                                                 Appendix A1 – Croftonpark.com

and support communication between residents, community and voluntary groups, faith
groups, young people and local business and local statutory services.




How will the success of the project be measured?

The success will be measured by the regular usage of the website and will be monitored
by the number of hits the webpage has on a monthly basis. The use of forums, and also
the contribution of local groups to building the pages and managing them will be a
measurable a part of judging the success. Local groups and organisations who are
profiled will be asked to feed back any increase in interest membership or support. We
will also attempt to construct the site so that we can count the number of people
accessing information about local service provision Safer neighbourhoods etc.

By the uptake of local businesses and community / voluntary groups using website to
promote their services, which in the long runs enabled the website to be sustainable by
the small advertising revenue received.

What impact will the project have on equalities within the ward?

This webpage will be open to anyone interested in Crofton Park and aims to provide
services for all age groups, the community and voluntary sector, and local businesses.
For those without IT facilities, the group will work with Crofton Park Library to encourage
promotion and usage.


What else is happening that may impact on this project?

There are no other community websites aimed at Crofton Park, however some residents
of Crofton park do use the Brockley Central WebPages demonstrating an interest
amongst residents of Crofton Park for a local community website.

The Crofton Park Community Notice Board project will be happening at the same time
and will help promote the community webpage.


What are the risks with this project?
Initial low uptake and usage of the website, leading the webpage to not being sustainable
in the long term.

The community website project is interlinked with community notice board project which
will advertise the website, connections with the Crofton Park youth forum will promote
usage of the youth webpage by members of the youth forum.

The webpage will be advertised in Lewisham Life, Impact magazine a Crofton park
publication, links to The Ackroyd Centre webpage and advertised on posters in the library
and local community venues.

How will this project be delivered and how will individuals /organisations
delivering the project be identified?

The delivery and maintenance of the website would be led by St Hilda’s in partnership
with a Croftonpark.com steering group. It is also proposed to involve young people in
maintaining the content and design of the webpage, possibly through links with Crofton
Park Youth Forum, a formal working agreement between St Hilda’s and the community
will be drafted.

An external web developer would be commissioned for the design and development of
the website, which would provide training sessions on updating content.

Name of Assembly: Evelyn
Project Title: Second Wave Outreach Initiative: Youth Action for Safer Communities
Project Idea:

This initiative will seek to build bridges for partnership work between young volunteers at
Second Wave and young people who are curre ntly less actively involved in their
communities. It will strengthen the involvement of local young people in an initiative
designed to make our neighbourhoods safer for people of all ages, and to build the skills
needed by the next generation of community leaders. We aim to develop an approach to
social responsibility and peer-support based on Restorative Approaches to anti-social
behaviour at a local level. We also aim to involve young people more directly in local
democracy and decision-making.

This will consolidate and strengthen the work we are already developing with Lewisham
Community Police Consultative Group, Voluntary Action Lewisham, SSLC (Somali and
Somaliland Lewisham Community), Silwood Integrated Youth Support Service, Sedgehill
School, and Lewisham Police.

Young people at Second Wave have been working closely with police officers and the
local authority for 5 years to address particular issues of concern: youth-on-youth crime,
violence, intimidation, hate crime, and gang-related activities throughout the borough.
The aim is to strengthen the wider involvement of local young people and their skills in
finding creative solutions.

As a youth-centred organisation, we have a track record of 27 years working positively to
strengthen the local community.
What does the project want to achieve and which of the assembly priorities does it
address?
     To motivate local young people by making the project take account of the young
       people’s ideas involved
     To help improve the social well-being of local people by increasing trust and
       confidence in the police
     Promoting inter-generational debate of local issues of concern
     To help change perceptions of local young people and the potential they offer as
       active citizens (i.e. as young citizens who care about their families, friends,
       neighbourhoods and the wider community).

The project seeks to help address the Evelyn Assembly ward priorities of:
           Not enough youth facilities
           Anti-social behaviour crime


How will the success of the project be measured?
The deliverables for this programme include:
    Participation of 50 local young people aged 13-24 years
    Participation of 10 local police officers
    2 taster workshops (with emphasis on 13 -18 age group)
    2 training workshops (in leadership skills for young volunteers)
    4 community outreach workshops (held in various local venues)
    2 seminar/debate events e.g. at Silwood IYSS and Sedgehill)

                                                        Appendix B1 – Second Wave
      2 evaluation sessions (open to all participants)
      A review based on evaluations and data provided by Lewisham police and the
       crime reduction service

Drama-based methods are used to overcome the distrust felt by young people towards
the police and the uncertainty police officers feel in their encounters with young people.
We insist that police officers attend the sessions wearing casual clothes in order to
overcome the barriers caused by police uniforms. (Please refer below for more
information about the impact of this work from a police perspective.)

We attach particular importance to the taster sessions which bring young people together
with the police initially to establish a positive and creative atmosphere for non-
confrontational interaction. The purpose of the taster sessions is to raise awareness of
crime and policing issues in the Deptford/Evelyn area and to identify the role young
people can play as citizens who care about their families, friends, neighbourhoods and
communities. These sessions also involve young volunteers who are slightly older and
have more experience of working with the police in this way. These volunteers act as
‘trusted intermediaries’, building bridges of respect and confidence, and helping to
reduce any tensions.

In a typical workshop session we include 8-12 young participants, 4-6 youth volunteers,
and 3-5 police officers. These workshops are led by practitioners with extensive
experience of working with young people and the police in community settings. The
choice of venue will constantly depend on the needs of the group. Space at Second
Wave is available, but it may be more appropriate, for example, to hold outreach
sessions with local Somali young people at Evelyn Community Centre, or with other
young people at the community centre on the Silwood Estate. All sessions are planned,
delivered and evaluated with the involvement of young volunteers.

The role of workshop leaders and facilitators is to enable participants and police officers
to work more confidently together as members of the community, with an increased
sense of collective responsibility.

We particularly welcome the opportunity offered by the Mayor’s Fund to focus our work
on local young people who have not been previously involved in any Second Wave
activities. For these young people, the opportunity to build a different and more positive
relationship with local police officers may be a whole new experience. We hope this will
strengthen their sense of safety in their neighbourhoods without needing to resort to
gangs or weapons in their efforts to protect themselves from violence, intimidation or
hate crime. Second Wave’s previous work with the local Somali community has identified
inter-cultural and inter-generational perspectives as important priorities. But the dialogue
needed to explore these issues has to be based on trust built gradually by careful and
sustained methods.

Once we have established a fundamental level of trust, the sessions can explore a
deeper understanding of key questions (for example, through role play and drama-based
scenarios). This encourages young people to think about the choices and the decisions
they need to make for themselves. For example: What helps you as a young person to
feel safe? How do you identify situations that are not safe? How are young people
harmed by other young people? Can you rely on the police for protection? What is the
best way to manage an encounter with the police? What are your legal rights when you
are questioned by the police?

Individuals delivering the programme will be qualified freela nce tutors and trainers with
previous experience of working with Second Wave, with relevant local knowledge and
expertise and CRB disclosures.

Local police officers will be involved as participants, engaging in workshops and
discussions with young people; and all aspects of the programme will be designed to
build the leadership skills of young volunteers in the community.

Overall supervision and management of the programme will be the responsibility of the
Director (Ann Considine) and the Trustees of Second Wave.

What impact will the project have on equalities within the ward?
The key features of this programme involving young people and the police will be:
    To encourage local young people to assume responsible roles as active citizens
      and decision-makers in their communities
    To strengthen the voices of these young people on issues of equality and social
      justice
    To work closely with people of all ages, marginalised groups and those who feel
      particularly vulnerable to hate crime and intimidation (e.g. elderly people and the
      local Somali community)
    To encourage meaningful dialogue between local young people, the police and
      the wider community, on the basis of mutual respect and collective responsibility
    To build trust and confidence in the police and to reduce conflict & confrontation in
      neighbourhood situations
    To reduce crime & anti-social behaviour and to record and evaluate best practice
      in the development of this approach
    To work closely in consultation with the local authority (e.g. the crime reduction
      service and community safety team) in sharing information and relevant expertise
      with other parts of the borough

What else is happening that may impact on this project?
We are working closely with Lewisham Community Police Consultative Group, the
Metropolitan Police Service and the Metropolitan Police Authority to develop innovative
approaches relevant to these issues of community safety and crime reduction.
Second Wave’s partnership work with Lewisham Community Police Consultative Group
was formally recognised at a full meeting of Lewisham Council on 24 September 2009.
This work also received an Award for Good Practice in Community Engagement from the
Metropolitan Police Authority (27 June 2009). In March 2007, Second Wave received a
Commendation from the Metropolitan Police Service for ‘professionalism and
commitment’ in working with police officers in Lewisham.
The creative drama-based approach developed by Second Wave in partnership with the
local Territorial Support Group (TSG4) has been acknowledged b y a Lewisham Police
Superintendent for successfully making ‘the TSG more accountable and accessible to
the local community’ and providing ‘a greater awareness and understanding of the
importance of community engagement, trust and confidence.’ In the view of one local
officer the advantage of this approach depends on non-confrontational interaction:
‘Together with the help of volunteers at Second Wave we created a positive ongoing
dialogue between young people and police officers, building bridges of mutual trust,
respect, confidence and understanding on both sides … Police officers cannot know
what is happening in young people’s lives, or how young people think about their daily
experiences, unless there are opportunities to meet and talk on informal basis beyond
                                             Mayor’s Fund Project Proposals - Evelyn
                                                          Appendix B1 – Second Wave
that zone of confrontation’ (Lewisham Police Inspector). In a safe environment, young
people, volunteers and police officers gain the knowledge and skills they need to address
serious issues (e.g. youth-on-youth crime) and to identify creative local solutions.
Our work has formed the basis of a national recommendation for improved police
training, as part of the Centre for Social Justice’s report on street gangs in Britain: ‘Dying
to Belong’ (February 2009). We are working with the Runnymede Trust on a new report
on ethnic profiling by the police, and the associated issues of social justice (for
publication in 2010). We have a partnership with the Open Society Justice Initiative to
establish links with youth projects in other parts of Europe to address the problem of
disproportionality and the misuse of police powers (such as ‘Stop and Search’).

What are the risks with this project?
We will make every effort to protect the safety and well-being of all participants, and to
ensure that high standards of safe practice are applied throughout the programme.
We will take care not to duplicate existing work or similar initiatives of this kind.
With the advice and support of the police, we will take all necessary safeguarding
measures, and undertake appropriate risk assessment procedures, to establish and
maintain a safe workshop environment for all participants.
How will this project be delivered and how will individuals / organisations
delivering the project be identified?
We are interested in building sustainable links with local organisations and schools and
using this funding to initiate a process of long-term collaboration. We would be
particularly interested in meeting teachers and pupils (especially young people in the 14 -
16 age group) who are concerned about neighbourhood safety issues and their relations
with the police in the Evelyn area. Second Wave staff will be pleased to arrange
meetings to facilitate this process of dialogue and to include police officers in these
meetings. We welcome the opportunity to consult closely with Evelyn Assembly on all
aspects of delivery. We are also working closely with Voluntary Action Lewisham to
identify community groups and young people in our area who feel particularly
marginalised and vulnerable to criminal behaviour, but who do not necessarily have
adequate support to overcome these difficulties.

                            Appendix B2 – Ahoy Centre ‘Making Waves in Evelyn’

Name of Assembly: Evelyn
Project Title: Making Waves in Evelyn
Project Idea:
To engage 72 young people in activities at The AHOY Centre. 36 young people to
participate in sailing activities one day a week (as part of their National Curriculum),
enabling the young people to gain a Nationally Recognised Qualification and 36 young
people to participate in a Fun/Taster Day at AHOY during the school holidays, givi ng
them the opportunity to sign up as volunteers at The AHOY Centre at the end of each
programme. Volunteering at the AHOY will engage the young people in the evening,
weekends and school holidays, in a active way; at the same time emphasising life skills,
team work and building on confidence.


What does the project want to achieve and which of the assembly priorities does it
address?
Funding is required to contribute to improving the facilities for young people in the Evelyn
ward by running an alternati ve education programme within its local schools and
providing school holiday activities for young people from the Evelyn Ward.

The experience AHOY provides disadvantaged and disabled people is not just over the
few days they attend a course – it goes a long way; involving them in their local
community by becoming part of an established sailing centre. This inclusion provides a
long-lasting contribution to the community as a whole. Through these activities and
courses the benefits include:

Enabling self-development by imparting a sense of achievement, responsibility and
teamwork. It further offers:
 The opportunity for all sections of the community to become involved in water sports
   and it’s social aspects by offering support and skill, increasing the sense of
   community spirit
 Young people to utilise sailing skills to participate in schemes such as the Duke of
   Edinburgh and Youth Achievement Awards
 Increase health awareness and fitness
 Focus the mind and provide a channel for energy for all participants within an exciting
   environment
 Increase the sense of achievement for both young people & adults providing the
   opportunity to compete nationally and gain industry recognised coaching
   qualifications
 Give a positive example to young children, providing role models, mentors and
   facilitating the realisation of what they can aim for
 Enable the local community to participate in a sport that few would have access to
   otherwise

         assessment of the findings
        We meet and discuss with teachers, groups and individuals involved in order to
         ascertain what positive outcomes have resulted from individuals’ participation in
         the project
        We record volunteer membership
        We keep a record of all sailing and power boating certificates awarded

What impact will the project have on equalities within the ward?

The AHOY Centre believes it is their personal approach and time invested in all it’s’
members that really makes that extra difference to its many activities. Traditionally,
sailing has not been available to those with disabilities, or anyone disadvantaged and
unable to pay club memberships and those suffering from the barriers of social exclusion.
Learning how to sail and becoming part of a club can significantly build self -esteem and
confidence in young people who are vulnerable and isolated in their communities. The
AHOY Centre are currently developing facilities so that any person, no matter what their
disability or ability, will be able to operate a sailing boat.

One of AHOY’s youth volunteers has said ‘At AHOY I do sailing, power boating and help
with the maintenance of the boats, AHOY has changed my life, not only have I not got in
trouble with the law but I have certificates to prove it!’

Sailing is one of the very few sports in which young people and adults can participate on
equal terms, helping to break down social barriers. Your generous support will give
opportunity to those that otherwise may not be able to participate in this type of activity.

What else is happening that may impact on this project?

There are no detrimental impacts locally that will affect this project. However, there is a
positive impact on the community – the young people will be given the opportunity to sign
up as a volunteer after the course and be engaged in activities at the AHOY in the
evenings, on the weekends and in the school holidays. AHOY offers young people an
alternative to crime and the gang culture. There are no other establishments in the area
that has what the AHOY has on offer.


What are the risks with this project?

AHOY is a Royal Yachti ng Association (RYA) accredited training centre and holds an
Adventure Activities Licensing Authority license. All courses leading to RYA
qualifications have to be in the presence and under the direction of a RYA Qualified
Instructor, they in turn are assisted by member-volunteers assistant instructors who have
been trained to be either qualified instructors; assistant instructors’ safety boat officers;
competent helms or shore masters, In house shipmate training, First Aid, Day skipper,
VHF radio and rowing. The Instructor ensures that each course is provided with
sufficient qualified personnel to receive the necessary tuition and safety cover. Everyone
regardless of the type of course or activity completes an assessment form. All staff and
volunteers have enhanced CRB checks.

How will this project be delivered and how will individuals /organisations
delivering the project be identified?
Education programme - Participants experience the opportunity to escape the classroom
environment and gain knowledge and understanding by participating in a sailing
curriculum course. The course is bespoke to meet the needs of the young people,
depending on their requirements and ensuring sailing can be delivered to those that have
special educational or physical needs. This is an ideal ‘alternative education programme’
which covers all aspects of outdoor and adventure activities. Many National Curriculum
subjects are covered, whilst at the same time emphasising life skills. Courses can be
targeted for the most hard to reach young people. Initial training is undertaken at a dock
on safe water and can be either 12 afternoon sessions or 6 full days – with a River
Induction course delivered at AHOY on the last day. Content of course: health and
safety; introduction to boats; rigging, educational activities; understanding of weather;
local ecology and history; off-site educational visit; principles of sailing and capsize
recovery.

Fun/Taster Day in sailing – The participants get the opportunity to go sailing in Laser
Stratos keels (3-man sailing dinghies) and/or Devon Lugger day sailing vessels, where
they learn to work together as a team to crew the boat. Content of day: health and
safety; rope work; following instructions; learning the names of the different parts of the
boat; steering and tidal work. The aim of the days is for participants to have fun and sign
up as volunteers at The AHOY Centre.

The Plan - We plan to engage 36 young people from Deptford Park, Tidemill Primary
School, St Josephs RC Primary School and Grinling Gibbons Primary school a education
programme during term time and to engage 36 young residents in fun days over the
school holidays from Deptford Adventure Playground, River Side Youth Centre and
Evelyn Community Centre

                                                Appendix B3 Riverside Youth Club–


Name of Assembly: Evelyn
Project Title: Riverside Youth Club - Steel Pan Band
Project Idea:
Riverside Youth Club will revive the Riverside performing steel pan band, consisting
young people from the area. We need:
     New equipment to expand the band
     Tuition fees to develop new recruits
The project will involve steel pan learning and performing for young people aged 10 – 19
on Saturdays during term times. This project provides the opportunity for young people
wanting to learn to play steel pans and join the band and perform at local fetes, People’s
Day and various public events. The project will be 31.5 weeks in length.
What does the project want to achieve and which of the assembly priorities does it
address?
The project aims to revive the Riverside Steel Pan Band and offer more young people
the chance to attend and learn by holding classes on a Saturday in a safe environment
as many young people are not able to get out on a school week day to attend. Many
young people have informed tutors that they are not able to access the youth club on
school week nights due to varied reasons and would like to come on a Saturday.
The assembly priorities that this meets are:
     not enough youth facilities
     anti-social behaviour

How will the success of the project be measured?
The success of the project will be measured by using Lewisham council’s Quality
Assurance framework (QAF). This measures young people’s attendance, evaluations at
each session, work plans, age and ethnic break downs. It will also be measured by the
increase of young people participating, we anticipate at least 30, and progressing to
become experienced players and participating in live performances.

What impact will the project have on equalities within the ward?
This project brings all multi-culture groups and people together within the community.
Steel pan band members and learners providing entertainment by performing at local
events, such as People’s Day and local events fetes, open days etc. Steel pan learning is
available to all young people regardless of their race and ability we aim to encourage
young people with autism to participate. The detached youth team will help encourage
participation from those currently disengaged with youth activity.
What else is happening that may impact on this project?
There are a lot of young people looking to do positive things at weekends as most youth
clubs are closed at this time. We hope this will impact positively on young people and
encourage them to come along and join in.

What are the risks with this project?
We do not anticipate any risks with this project. We feel confident that we can encourage
the numbers of young people required to take part in the project. The sessions will be
held in a safe environment along with qualified youth workers and tutors.

How will this project be delivered and how will individuals /organisations
delivering the project be identified?
The project will be delivered by a qualified music tutor and a support worker that
presently teach steel pans at the Riverside Youth Club each Saturday during term time.

What impact will the project have on equalities within the ward?

      We will provide opportunities to young refugees at risk. It will create an
       environment for role models and also give young people a chance to overcome
       their barriers
      The project will engage all ethnic refugees in Evelyn and we will carry out all the
       steps which we can to increase the participation by a marketing campaign with
       Lewisham College and Powerleague
      The project will make outreach to refugee community centres i.e. SEDEC,
       REETA, Lewisham Refugee Network and Lewisham College
      We will try and engage all refugee football teams
      We will make sure all young refugees have equal access by our promotional
       activities to ensure inclusivity
      We will discuss and review representation at our monthly networking meetings

What else is happening that may impact on this project?
This project will provide guidance to young people at risk so they can find employment,
education or training in a ward where deprivation is significantly higher than the national
average.

This project will reduce gang culture and create role models / help facilitate a brighter
future for young refugees at risk.

This project will for the first time ever in Evelyn’s, give young refugees in the ward a
chance to organise events, chair meetings, get presentation and leadership skills by
working with Voluntary Action Lewisham.

What are the risks with this project?
If some young people find it difficult to travel to Power League Catford (we will consult
first), which has good facilities for football, then we will find a local suitable venue i.e.
Deptford Green and Deptford Park.

All necessary precautions are in place such as CRB checks, health and safety and
insurance can be viewed at our office.
How will this project be delivered and how will individuals / organisations
delivering the project be identified?

      First we will establish contacts with other young refugee groups and recruit young
       people for the programme through refugee communities, Lewisham College,
       Connexions and Lewisham Youth Service.

What impact will the project have on equalities within the ward?

      The project will target both boys a nd girls within the Evelyn Ward
      The activities are gender friendly and will boost self esteem and confidence of all
       young people taking part

What else is happening that may impact on this project?

The Lewington Centre already hosts evening, weekday youth provision, an under 5’s
club and day time IT and exercise courses. These Saturday activities will e nhance and
help promote current activities at the Centre and support a growing demand from young
people and their families of things to do.

What are the risks with this project?

       Dealing with high demand for the activities with limited spaces for each course.-
        this will be managed on a registration (first come first served)
      relying on volunteers for the distribution of leaflets (L&Q will also use their leaflet
        distributor)
      recruitment of a local administrator for the project (Can recruit from Catch 22, who
        have a pool of youth workers who are CRB checked)
(all these risks need statement to mitigate against)
Leap and Millwall are fully insured to deliver these programmes, will forward copies of the
risk assessments.

All staff and volunteers are (or will be) CRB checked by L&Q or the lead organisations
(Millwall or Leap).
How will this project be delivered and how will individuals /organisations
delivering the project be identified?

      Young people’s views will be taken into account by working with the Centre Youth
       Forum and using feedback via questionnaires after each session
      Many of the young people are already known to the Centre

                                                Appendix B6 Deptford Family Project–

Name of Assembly: Evelyn
Project Title: Deptford Family Project
Project Idea:
This is a family focused project with the following aims:
    to raise awareness of cardio-vascular disease (CVD) and raise awareness of the
        importance of a healthy life style among the local community.
    To give updated information on the importance of health and well-being related
        issues
    to encourage participation from parents and children from disadvantaged and
        ‘hard to reach’ communities (asylum seekers, refugees and migrants) who are
        highly isolated in Evelyn ward, due to language, culture barriers and lack of
        confidence and self esteem
    to encourage refugees to participate in a variety of activities such as keep fit
        sessions, nutrition classes and coffee mornings
    to raise awareness of depression, diabetes, and childhood obesity
The project will deliver these aims through a series of social events including: coffee
morning every Wednesday from 10 – 12pm; Yoga (2 class morning and afternoon to
encourage more people to participate) every Thursday from 10 11 and afternoon class
2pm -3pm; Nutrition class every Friday from 11am – 1pm.

What does the project want to achieve and which of the assembly priorities does it
address?
By early intervention and awareness-raising, we will improve mental health and well
being in the community. Other health outcomes we want to achieve will be a reduction in
premature death from CVD, a reduction of other diseases like diabetes. We will also
improve the lifestyle around health of the local community, and seek to have a positive
effect on the incidences of childhood obesity.

We will reduce problems of mental health like depression in the community. The
objectives will be achieved through outreach work in the community and weekly
sessions.

The project will meet the Assembly objectives of tackling anti-social behaviour by
bringing parents and children together in fun activities like cooking, games and sports.
The more understanding between parents and children the less likely there will be anti -
social behaviour from the children. We also aim to empower the parents through
activities like exercise classes and healthy lifestyle classes, and parenting classes so that
they can find effective and strategic ways of tackling anti-social behaviour in their
children. The biggest reason for anti-social behaviour is parents not being able to
communicate properly with their children.

We will reach groups through outreach groups using community activists, and through
places where parents and children go like schools and community centres. We will also
advertise in libraries, community centres and doctor’s surgeries.
We hope to have 200 participants. The age group will be teenagers 13 – 19 years and
their parents 25 – 50 years.

The project helps to meet the following Evelyn assembly priorities:
    not enough youth facilities
    antisocial behaviour

How will the success of the project be measured?
The project will be measured by recording statistics of those attending on age, gender,
nationality, disability. To measure the success we will ask all participants to fill in a form
with details of the age, ethnicity, and mental and physical health. They will then be given
another form at the end of the project with additional questions regarding the
improvement to their mental and physical well-being since doing the project activities.
We will do a survey to assess impact of the project and the extent to whic h it helped
empower them as parents. We will fill in the questionnaire with staff (and interpreters if
necessary) face-to-face.

What impact will the project have on equalities within the ward?

The project could have a significant impact on the health inequalities in the area. It will
particularly impact on families on unemployment benefit or low income as they suffer a
higher proportion of health inequalities. The health of women and children from refugee
communities will particularly benefit.

What else is happening that may impact on this project?

At the moment there is a gap in the market for this kind of project in the Evelyn ward.
There was a healthy lifestyle project at Lewisham Refugee Network but that has finished.
There are no nutrition /cooking programmes in the area.

What are the risks with this project?

The risks are that we will not be able to reach enough of our client group. We aim to
mitigate against this by working in partnership with Lewisham Refugee Network,
Children’s Centre, Evelyn Community Centres and Community Action 2000. Each
partner will undertake to recruit a certain number of participants.

There is also a risk of clients losing interest if the project does not meet their needs. We
will have regular discussions with clients for their feedback of the project. If they are
unhappy with any aspect of it we will work to change it. We will also look at other funding
to ensure the long term sustainability of the project.

How will this project be delivered and how will individuals /organisations
delivering the project be identified?

This project will run 3-days a week There will be a 2-hour yoga session and a 2-hour
cooking session with qualified tutors and crèche provision. There will be a coffee morning
with parents and children together. We intend to deliver classes both practically and
theoretically with hand outs and debates on the progress of the work

The project will recruit people in the community to run the project. They will have a track
record of delivering successful projects at a local level.

Medical professionals will not be involved as we have not been registered by the
Healthcare Commission to provide medical care. We will however, refer participants on if
necessary.
Deptford family project will manage the project.

                                Appendix C1 Hilly Fields Community Bowling Green–

Name of Assembly: Ladywell
Project Title: Hilly Fields (Francis Drake) Community Bowling Green
Project Idea: To install a modern irrigation system to rejuvenate the playing surface. The
area of the green is approximately 1,200 metres and is currently watered by the use of
hoses, which is very labour and time intensive and does not deliver sufficient water to the
green. The system is designed to give maximum coverage with minimum levels of water
required to keep the green, green. Computerised operation allows for maximum
absorption and minimum evaporation by sprinkling after daylight hours. The system
automatically shuts down should there have been rain.

The club currently has around 70 users and is actively seeking to increase this number
by 30 (including attracting young people) during 2010.


What does the project want to achieve and which of the assembly priorities does it
address?
(1) Continuation of a community sporting facility which has been in existence since 1906.
(2) To return the green to an acceptable standard for County and National level
competitions.
(3) To be able to continue offering free coaching to the local community. Francis Drake
is the only local bowls club which offers the opportunity to learn from Bowls England
qualified coaches.
(4) Encouraging more people to benefit from the facility, parts of which have become
unusable. Potentially this facility is available to every resident from the local community.
(5) We are in contact with local schools and youth organisations to introduce pupils and
young people to bowls as a sporting activity. This could help reduce anti-social
behaviour and address the lack of youth and community facilities, both of which are key
priorities for Ladywell
The project helps address the following key priorities for Ladywell:
      streetscape and environment
      lack of youth and community facilities
and may further help to address the followi ng priority:
      anti-social behaviour and crime

How will the success of the project be measured?
Lewisham Council are currently engaged in a major bowls promotion with Sport England.
It is planned to get hundreds of new people bowling. This project, which will result in
increased use of the green on a daily basis, will be closely monitored. Bowls is an
accredited part of the Government Health Scheme. Under the project hundreds of
elderly/retired people will be encouraged to become more active, while at t he same time
enjoying the social side of bowls.

                                                          Appendix C2 Youth Village

Name of Assembly: Ladywell

Project Title: Youth Village
Project Idea:

Involving 3 wards to work together to address the issue of lack of youth provision as all
three have youth as a priority. The Youth Village will have provisions running for young
people from the age of 5-19 and up to 25 years old if they have learning difficulties and/or
disabilities. Once this is running it would bring in various other opportunities for young
people within the wards.

What does the project want to achieve and which of the assembly priorities does it
address?

Location:

The project will operate from the Ladywell Centre, St Mary’s Centre and the forthcoming
adventure playground.

Aim:
To provide young people aged between 13-25 with a safe environment, where they could
come in and enjoy education, social and recreational activities. All activities will have
recorded and/or accredited outcomes.

Objectives:
The education will be completed through workshops and informal discussions. The topic
will be initially on Drugs, sexual relationship education (SRE), Healthy Living, arts &
crafts, sports etc as these issues influence their lives daily.

The recreational activities will be undertaken through the youth club programme, skate
boarding, utilising Ladywell centre to do multi sports, performing a rts (as they have an
indoor space) activities that include club based activities such as Pool, Table Tennis,
board games etc.

The Social element is covered through the events, outings, residential trips, holiday
programmes etc. It will also include a chill out zone where young people can socialise,
relax and talk.

The young people will have a youth forum that ensures the Quality of work is maintained
and the activities are matched to what they would like to see happening.

The project will be ensure that all 5 Every Child Matters outcome are covered.

Funding:
Please see the start up cost, this is an estimate only. There is a need to organise a
management committee comprising from the 3 wards which includes young people from
these wards. This group will ensure with the support of the youth service to raise funds
from external funding sources to sustain future work.

Partners:
       Local community: Management Committee (made up from each assembly
                                            Mayor’s Fund Project Proposals- Ladywell
                                                          Appendix C2 Youth Village
         group),
        Lewisham Youth Services and Adventure Playground,
        Venue Providers: Ladywell Centre, St Mary's Centre, Adventure playground and
         Skate boarding place
        Ladywell, Lewisham Central and Rushey Green wards together with Lewisham
         Youth Service.

Value for Money:
The project demonstrates value for money as it will ensure it can get young people away
from negative activities, to getting involved in positive activities. It will ensure young
people’s voices are heard and acted upon by getting young people to take part in positive
activities and ensure anti-social behaviour is reduced. As the premises will be able to
host multi agency work it will attract more resource to the area.

Proposed time and days of opening:
If all parties contribute to the proposed finance we can have the venues opened on
separate nights this will allow opening for 3 nights a week. 1 nights in each place
including Saturday.

Additional support:
Young people will have additional support as we can make the adventure playground into
a satellite point where there will be different agencies coming in on separate night to do
workshops and/or run one to one support sessions, i.e., drugs, SRE, Education
Employment and Training (EET), Advice Information and Guidance (AIG), Connexions to
develop work experience placements for Not in Education Employment or Training
access services.

In the long term this will also draw in young people from all three wards and build
community cohesion. It will also help reduce the issues of territorial warfare and gang
issues which are becoming an increasing issue in the borough.

The project addresses the youth priorities for Ladywell assembly.

How will the success of the project be measured?

Success
All activities will be selected by young people and all young people will receive
certificates (recorded certificates for all young people who take part in activities and
accredited certificates for all young people who take part in activities where accreditation
can be achieved through AQA’s qualifications, Duke of Edinburgh Award, Arts and
Crafts, SRE, Drugs, Community safety, Asdan)

Each year we will hold an awards evening to celebrate the success thank all the young
people, volunteers and staff to motivate them. During this time certificates will be
presented to the young people and volunteers.

Our project has an open access policy and we ensure that all the young people feel
welcome regardless of their race, gender, ethnicity, sexuality etc and encourage to
participate in the full programme. To ensure we implement Lewisham Council’s policy at
all time we display various posters and leaflets representing diversity. We also ensure
staff are able to challenge and re-address Lewisham’s equal opportunities policy. We
will make group rules with young people and also displayed it on the wall so all young
people can remind themselves of it.

We will also ensure access for disabled young people is created in all centres.

What else is happening that may impact on this project?

The monitoring and evaluating of the project will be done as following:

We will have a written evaluation from staff
We will have a verbal and written evaluation from young people
This will be done through our youth service existing Quality Assurance Framework (QAF)
form to ensure high standard is maintained

Daily briefing and de –briefing of staff will take place to ensure staff are fully aware of
their responsibilities for the day.

Through the signing in sheet we will be able to draw out the number of young people
attending including the record of age, ethnicity, gender etc.

Regular meeting with staff will ensure quality of work and deal with any outstanding
issues including any change to programme to make it affective. The young people of the
programme will also be represented at these meeting to ensure that their views are fully
considered.

There will be a Senior Youth & Community Worker in place to ensure all the QAF is
completed and the smooth running of the summer programme, also all staff will be
trained adequately on relevant issues. Also all staff will be recruited through the formal
process and have all the relevant checks.

There will be a strict health and safety controls in place which is monitored by Lewisham
Youth Services’ management this includes registration of all young people.

What are the risks with this project?

The sustainability of the project will be a challenge as it would require large amount of
money each year, but this will be dealt with through the management committee who will
receive full support for future fund raising.

How will this project be delivered and how will individuals /organisations
delivering the project be identified?

Managed Appropriately
The project is delivered by Lewisham Youth Service. All activities will be risk assessed by
staff and by the venue young people will be visiting. All forms of health and safety comply

What impact will the project have on equalities within the ward?
The project is aimed at young people (age 13-19) from all backgrounds and ethnic
groups. If possible, partnership work with Brighter Futures (Lewisham Homes &
Lewisham Youth Service) will engage less economically well off young people based on
estates. The project may involve working with some young offenders. Both girls and boys
will be invited to join the project.

What else is happening that may impact on this project?
Brighter Futures might be functioning in southern part of borough. As the youth service
has worked with the Brighter Futures on four occasions in the north of the borough if the
timing is right we could work in partnership with them to capitalise on their work in
estates in the ward to refer young people onto the project.

What are the risks with this project?
Participants stealing paint and using them illegally. Adequate staffing per young person
will help mitigate against this. The workers will reinforce positive messages around
appropriate behaviours from young people on the project. Should not enough young
people from the ward be recruited onto the project, a reserve list will be able to able to
‘top up’ numbers.

How will this project be delivered and how will individuals / organisations
delivering the project be identified?
Via the local youth projects, School and local housing providers.
The Youth Service area co-ordinator and project worker will coordinate and deliver the
project.

                                              Appendix C4 Making Waves in Ladywell

Name of Assembly: Ladywell
Project Title: Making Waves in Ladywell
Project Idea:
The Aim:
Funding is required to work with young people that are at risk of offending and/or are
involved in the local gang culture – AHOY and Ladywell SNT will identify 7 young people
(aged 15 to 21) and engage them in an activity at AHOY, giving them an alternative to
being on the streets and partaking in things that may lead them into crime. We want to
give them the opportunity to get involved in a community activity, by participating in a
Powerboat Course (over 3 days) on the river Thames, enabling them to gain a Nationally
Recognised Qualification. They will do the course with 2 SNT officers with the aim to
break down any social barriers, while giving the young people a positive activity to do
with the police

Also we would like to offer the two youth clubs in the ward the opportunity to come along
to AHOY for a Taster day to experience what we have to offer.

At the end of the powerboat course and the taster days the young people will be given
the opportunity to sign up as volunteers at The AHOY Centre. Volunteering at the AHOY
will engage the young people in the evening, weekends and school holidays, in a active
way; at the same time emphasising life skills, team work and building on confidence.

What does the project want to achieve and which of the assembly priorities does it
address?
Funding is required to contribute to improve the facilities for young people in the Ladywell
ward by providing holiday activities for young people from the Ladywell Ward.
The experience AHOY provides disadvantaged and disabled people is not just over the
few days they attend a course – it goes a long way; involving them in their local
community by becoming part of an established sailing centre. This inclusion provides a
long-lasting contribution to the community as a whole. Through these activities and
courses the benefits include:
 Enabling self-development by imparting a sense of achievement, responsibility and
    teamwork.
 The opportunity for all sections of the community to become involved in water sports
    and it’s social aspects by offering support and skill, increasing the sense of
    community spirit.
 Allowing youths to utilise sailing skills to participate in schemes such as the Duke of
    Edinburgh and Youth Achievement Awards
 Increase health awareness and fitness.
 Through focusing the mind and providing a channel for energy for all participants
    within an exciting environment.
 Increase the sense of achievement for both youths & adults in providing the
    opportunity to compete nationally and gain industry recognised coaching
    qualifications.

What impact will the project have on equalities within the ward?

The AHOY Centre believes it is their personal approach and time invested in all its’
members that really makes that extra difference to its many activities. Traditionally,
sailing has not been available to those with disabilities, or anyone disadvantaged and
unable to pay club memberships and those suffering from the barriers of social exclusion.
Please do refer to the appendix attached for more detailed research carried out by The
AHOY Centre.

Learning how to sail and becoming part of a club can significantly build self -esteem and
confidence in young people who are vulnerable and isolated in their communities. The
AHOY Centre are currently developing facilities so that any person, no matter what their
disability or ability, will be able to operate a sailing boat.

One of AHOY’s youth volunteers has said ‘ At AHOY I do sailing, power boating and
help with the maintenance of the boats, AHOY has changed my life, not only have I not
got in trouble with the law but I have certificates to prove it!’

Please refer to a police report from 2005 that is an example representing what the AHOY
offers and I have also enclosed a case study which shows an example of how The AHOY
Centre has changed one young person’s life.

Sailing is one of the very few sports in which young people and adults ca n participate on
equal terms, helping to break down social barriers. Your generous support will give
opportunity to those that otherwise may not be able to participate in this type of activity,
because it has to be said;
‘Sometime to be given a chance is all that some one needs.

What else is happening that may impact on this project?
There are no any detrimental impacts locally that will affect this project. However, there is
a positive impact on the community – the young people will be given the opportunity to
sign up as a volunteer after the course and be engaged in activities at the AHOY in the
evenings, on the weekends and in the school holidays. AHOY offers young people an
alternative to crime and the gang culture. There are no other establishments in the area

What are the risks with this project?
AHOY is a Royal Yachting Association (RYA) accredited training centre and holds an
Adventure Activities Licensing Authority license. All courses leading to RYA qualifi cations
have to be in the presence and under the direction of a RYA Qualified Instructor, they in
turn are assisted by member-volunteers assistant instructors who have been trained to
be either qualified instructors; assistant instructors’ safety boat officers; competent helms
or shore masters, In house shipmate training, First Aid, Day skipper, VHF radio and
rowing. The Instructor ensures that each course is provided with sufficient qualified
personnel to receive the necessary tuition and safety cover. Everyone regardless of the
type of course or activity completes an assessment form. All staff and volunteers have
enhanced CRB checks.

Name of Assembly: Ladywell
Project Title: AlertBox Scheme – Ladywell Village

Project Idea: To purchase 25 AlertBox boxes and supply to retailers within Ladywell
Village as part of a Business Watch scheme. The traders will then be fully trained on how
to use the AlertBoxes along with the Safer Neighbourhood Team who will be further
trained in analysing crime data from the AlertBoxes. Traders within networked
communities can communicate instantly when personal safety issues or crime is a
concern. Each device contains the name, address and telephone number of the business
that it is located. When the warning or help button is pressed, the network is made aware
of the issue, the location and the person who originated the message. Essentially it is a
form of electronic neighbourhood watch to counter the effects of low-level crime and anti-
social behaviour. The presence of an AlertBox network creates a better flow of
information to community safety partnerships and safer neighbourhood teams due to
"witness power" which in turn promotes community engagement and a more effective
use of police resources.

What does the project want to achieve and which of the assembly priorities does it
address?
The scheme will help retailers to reduce levels of crime and anti-social behaviour within
their premises, it will also enable shops to work together to reduce crime and the fear of
crime by sharing information and assisting other businesses participating in the scheme
(see above). There are now numerous AlertBox schemes operating nationwide including
several in Lewisham.
The project helps address the following Ladywell assembly priorities:
     local shops
     anti-social behaviour and crime

How will the success of the project be measured?
  1. Creation of a Business Watch Scheme – This is similar to a neighbourhood watch
     and will bring businesses together so that they can work with other businesses to
     reduce crime by supporting each other.
  2. Increase in crime detections – The scheme will enable a problem / potential
     problem to be identified at initiation, the activation of the AlertBox will ensure that
     more potential witnesses see the incident that police are aware earlier.
  3. Better intelligence to the local Safer Neighbourhood Team – All data from the
     AlertBox can be analysed thus allowing the police to review crime patterns and
     locations of incidents.
  4. Reduction in anti-social behaviour both within and outside Lad ywell village shops
     – The issue of an AlertBox is a good deterrent as the retailer is no longer alone.
     By pressing a single button they can have the support of all the other businesses
     on the network.

What impact will the project have on equalities within the ward?
The new AlertBox scheme will promote a sense of community between businesses in the
town centre, allowing them to work closer together and support each other. It is
envisaged that the scheme will promote closer partnership working between businesses
beyond just crime, in other issues that are important to them.
The scheme will also benefit shoppers, local residents and passers -by through reduced
crime and sense of crime. In this way the impact will hopefully promote confidence in

people using the shops and passing through the area, particularly single women, older
people, those using the area at night, and some ethnic groups.

What else is happening that may impact on this project?

The creation of the Business watch to run alongside the scheme will ensure that retailers
are not only aware of the benefits of the AlertBox, but in addition they are working
alongside other retailers and the police to reduce crime.


What are the risks with this project?

Few risks are envisaged, however, there may be the risk of shops not using the
AlertBoxes or using them properly. However, the Safer Neighbourhood Team will be
working closely with all shops to support in using the new system. An additional small
risk is a shop owner taking the AlertBox with them when vacating the shop (e.g. end of
lease). In order to mitigate this, a contract (which will include a condition of issue
requiring them to return) will be provided to all shops participating in the scheme and in
addition it is envisaged that the new Town Centre Manager will work closely with the SNT
to highlight vacating shops.

How will this project be delivered and how will individuals /organisations
delivering the project be identified?

There are now numerous AlertBox schemes nationally and several in Lewisham. This is
an established company used to working alongside local authorities and the police. The
three partners involved are AlertBox who will train the police, the Safer Neighbourhood
Team who will issue the AlertBoxes and train the retailers and the retailers themselves
who will agree to support the scheme and work alongside other retailers to help reduce
crime and anti-social behaviour. The project will be managed by Lewisham Police Safer
Neighbourhood Team.

                                          Appendix D1 Making Waves in Perry Vale
Name of Assembly: Perry Vale
Project Title: Ahoy Centre – ‘Making Waves In Perry Vale’
Project Idea:
To engage 12 local young people in sailing activities one day a week, enabling the young
people to gain a Nationally Recognised Qualification, as well as being given the
opportunity to sign up as volunteers at The AHOY Centre at the end of the programme.
This program will give them the opportunity to get involved in a community activity and
sign up as a volunteer at AHOY. Volunteering at the AHOY will engage the young people
in the evening, weekends and school holidays, in a active way; at the same time
emphasising life skills, team work and building confidence.

What does the project want to achieve and which of the assembly priorities does it
address?
Funding is required to contribute to improve the facilities for young people in the Perry
Vale ward by running an alternative education programme within Brent Knoll School.

The experience AHOY provides disadvantaged and disabled people is not just over the
few days they attend a course – it goes a long way; involving them in their local
community by becoming part of an established sailing centre. This inclusion provides a
long-lasting contribution to the community as a whole. Through these activities and
courses the benefits include:

Enabling self-development by imparting a sense of achievement, responsibility and
teamwork. It further offers:
 The opportunity for all sections of the community to become involved in water sports
   and it’s social aspects by offering support and skill, increasing the sense of
   community spirit
 Young people to utilise sailing skills to participate in schemes such as the Duke of
   Edinburgh and Youth Achievement Awards
 Increase health awareness and fitness
 Focus the mind and provide a channel for energy for all participants within an exciting
   environment
 Increase the sense of achievement for both young people & adults providing the
   opportunity to compete nationally and gain industry recognised coaching
   qualifications
 Give a positive example to young children, providing role models, mentors and
   facilitating the realisation of what they can aim for
 Enable the local community to participate in a sport that few would have access to
   otherwise

Sailing on the Thames, participants have the increased opportunity to learn about the
river, its wildlife and historic past.

How will the success of the project be measured?

  Evaluation forms for every activity are completed by participants, staff and project
   partners
  After the activity we review the evaluation forms received and make an assessment of
   the findings
  We meet and discuss with teachers, groups and individuals involved in order to
   ascertain what positive outcomes have resulted from individuals’ participation in the

Education programme - Participants experience the opportunity to escape the classroom
environment and gain knowledge and understanding by participating in a sailing
curriculum course. The course is bespoke to meet the needs of the young people,
depending on their requirements and ensuring sailing can be delivered to those that have
special educational or physical needs. This is an ideal ‘alternative education programme’
which covers all aspects of outdoor and adventure activities. Many National Curriculum
subjects are covered, whilst at the same time emphasising life skills. Courses can be
targeted for the most hard to reach young people. Initial training is undertaken at a dock
on safe water and can be either 12 afternoon sessions or 6 full days – with a River
Induction course delivered at AHOY on the last day. Content of course: health and
safety; introduction to boats; rigging, educational activities; understanding of weather;
local ecology and history; off-site educational visit; principles of sailing and capsize
recovery.

The Plan - We plan to engage 12 young people from Brent Knoll Special Needs School
in education programme during term time.

            Appendix E1 Renovation and development of Silverdale Hall playground


Name of Assembly: Sydenham
Project Title: Renovation and development of Silverdale Hall playground
Project Idea: To transform a derelict playground into a green space with opportunities for
children & youth to play and exercise in safety; and to provide a garden and raised bed
growing area; to encourage community enterprise training schemes to follow. To make
the space open to the community.
This will involve:
     Clearing grounds of vegetation and chip for later use
     Removing any roots and repair the playground surfacing ready for installation of
       railway sleepers and wood chips to create informal supervised play area
     Making good, and where necessary, replacing perimeter fencing to improve safety
       and security
     Providing new fencing for ball park play area
     To clear access via side entrance and making good of separate access gate
     To provide for a community garden by installation of raised beds for an organic
       growing project
This presents phase 1 of a larger scheme which will seek additional funding to create an
adventure playground with play equipment and better community garden facilities.
Venner Hall Community Association (leading this project) is working in partnership with
LBL Community Sector Unit, LBL Green scene, Community PayBack team and
Envirowork Lewisham. The project will make use of community volunteers both in
execution of the work and to improve the access by the community (supervised play
sessions etc).

What does the project want to achieve and which of the assembly priorities does it
address?
The project seeks to open this currently discussed space for community use by creating
a pleasant and safe environment for children to play in and learn about community
gardening and environmental sustainability.

The project addresses the following Sydenham priorities:

      improving community safety and tackling anti- social behaviour
      more activities for children and young people
      environmental improvement

How will the success of the project be measured?

      Delivery of a disused space back to community use
      Monitoring the number of children and young people using the area
      Monitoring volunteer uptake with the project

What impact will the project have on equalities within the ward?
The project is aimed at increasing access to young people and volunteers from across
the community and will have a positive impact on cohesion in the ward by engaging
young people in play and gardening. The Venner Road Management Committee brings
together a diverse range of individuals of ethnic background, faith and socio-economic
status . Working together will increase bonds and understanding in and between
communities.

What else is happening that may impact on this project?
Improvements have recently been made to Silverdale Hall
There is a possibility that management of Silverdale Hall could be passed to Venner Hall
Community Association. This would follow agreement on a plan for future use and
discussion with the Sydenham Local Assembly.
Lewisham’s Community Sector Unit is exploring how accessibility can be improved to
Silverdale Hall for example making the toilet DDA compliant.

What are the risks with this project?
The project has been phased to allow immediate use of the space and reduce risk from
more complicated project elements (installation of play equipment) that would have had
an ongoing health and safety inspection implication. The Venner Hall Community
Association will be working in partnership with Envirowork to further reduce risk of project
elements by use of a contractor with proven track record.

How will this project be delivered and how will individuals /organisations
delivering the project be identified?
Some of the project will be delivered by Envirowork for example fencing & gates,
installation of sleeper and bark chipping play surface. The clearance aspect will be
managed by Venner Hall Community Association with PayBack team and use of
volunteers. The project will be managed by Venner Hall Community Association.
