Community Champions across Camden
Eleanor Rudd, Youth Leadership and Regent’s Park Community Champions Manager for Fitzrovia Youth in Action has helped residents get appropriate training and has facilitated consultations on local issues. “So far, the group have organised litter picks, art pop ups in the park, organised Cumberland Fun Fest, taken part in projects with UCL such as Cumberland Workbench, Wayfinder project and a brilliant art project for young people connected to Euston.” she says.
Plans are in place for more popups and events in the coming months. The Community Champions work is expanding too, the pilot is being trialled on estates in Kentish Town and Kilburn.
