London's Community Kitchen
Other

London’s Community Kitchen (LCK) Zero Waste, Zero Hunger, receives rescued food from local supermarkets e.g. Morrison’s, The Felix Project retailers, business and individuals that would otherwise be wasted. LCK has been working with its partners in Harrow, and other neighbouring boroughs to receive and redistribute food supplies to the community without stigmatising the beneficiaries. The work of LCK has escalated exponentially due to the pandemic and it now finds itself not only delivering food in the borough but supporting food insecure residents and their families. LCK is working on a sustainable model to serve the community, not just by feeding but by providing education so that those trapped in food poverty can access a life where they can come out of food deprivation.

PLYMOUTH YOUTH SAILING CLUB
Other

Plymouth Youth Sailing gives opportunities to disadvantaged people in Plymouth. We aim to give our participants skills and ability to help break the cycle of deprivation and see beyond their disadvantage. To do so we provide an activity outside of their normal area of life experience to heighten self-esteem, build confidence and create a sense of achievement and self-worth. The activities we deliver give a chance to try new and fun experiences, to participate regularly in these activities, work as a team, develop skills and knowledge and build group relationships.The organisation can only deliver the extensive programme through assistance from volunteers, both adults and young people.We provide a further opportunity through the sailing club for people to maintain their interest and continue to develop their skills and confidence through participation and adventurous water activities.In this way the club actively encourages members of the community, regardless of age, gender, race or ability to participate in sailing and help them develop their personal and social skills.Throughout the Covid-19 crisis, we've particularly missed the activities that not-for-profits provide outside of school that helps to satisfy the socialisation needs of children and young people. They no longer have a physical space in which to share their interests, thoughts, hopes, and emotions among peers. These settings provide the space for children and young people to learn and develop social competencies, such as self-confidence, friendship, empathy, participation, respect, gratitude, compassion, and responsibility.  Social and emotional learning is very important for children and young people to become important contributors to our communities. Therefore, we hope that policy makers and funders appreciate this important role as we adjust to the 'new normal'
