Young Greenwich, the youth service delivered by Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT) on behalf of the Royal Borough of Greenwich, introduces its new sessions ‘Inters’ as one of the initiatives supported by the Mayor of London’s Young Londoners Fund. 

About the funding

The Young Londoners Fund is a crucial part of the Mayor of London’s Office’s commitment to tackling youth violence. CACT will be part of the biggest round of funding yet from the Mayor Young Londoners Fund. CACT will be leading on the delivery of the Connect project with its partners the Royal Borough of Greenwich, Peabody Trust and the London Borough of Bexley.

The Young Londoners grant awarded by Mayor Sadiq Khan is £150k over three years. CACT, Royal Greenwich and Peabody are supplying match funding which equates to a further £90k.

Connect will enhance the existing youth service offer at The Link – run by Peabody – Woolwich Common Youth Hub and Hawksmoor Youth Hub – both run by Young Greenwich, the youth service CACT delivers on behalf of RBG, by providing enhanced training to youth workers.

What is Inters?

Amongst the variety of planned projects, Inters sessions support young people aged 8-12, providing a safe space and opportunities for them to develop their skills. These sessions will contribute towards giving young people the support they need to fulfil their potential and avoid getting caught up in crime.

The Inters sessions are free and will take place at:

  • Valley Central Youth Hub on Mondays 4pm - 6pm
  • Hawksmoor Youth Hub on Wednesdays 4.30pm – 6.30pm & Thursdays 3.45pm – 5.45pm
  • Avery Hill Youth Hub on Thursdays 4pm – 6pm

Charlie Macdonald, CACT’s Director of Youth & Inclusion, said:

“CACT is delighted to be asked to deliver the programme alongside key partners.

“This is a major project that will support the aims of CACT’s refreshed Street Violence Ruins Lives strategy which will see CACT continue its commitment to working towards reducing youth violence.”
