Read and Play: a story of change
Set in a yurt surrounded by trees and vegetables, “Read and Play” is a storytelling workshop for children in Somers…
What if we lived in a borough where every young person has access to opportunities that make them safe and secure? Where young people’s talents and ambitions translate into secure employment or entrepreneurialism, and where young people form a wide network of relationships that support them to grow and develop into their adult life?
Camden is home to huge opportunities for young people, with sector-leading public services, a rich community of youth activities, and exciting global and local employers. And yet, not all young people have access to these opportunities – or can translate their ambitions and talents into opportunities that help them to be safe and secure.
We want to create a borough where every young person can access and create opportunity – regardless of their background or identity and where value of caring responsibilities are recognised and appropriately compensated.
Young people, businesses, the Council and other partners must work together to make this happen. Camden’s vibrant community and its arts, technology, business, and academic sectors can together create the space, resources, and opportunities for young people to realise their full potential and shape how they want to live – now and in the future.
If you are a resident, or work for a local organisation or business that wants to get involved in this mission, Get in touch, we want to hear from you.
