Our 2022/23 Impact Report is out now!

Jun 10, 2024 | News

We recently published our Impact Report for September 2022 – August 2023. Over this past year, we have worked with more than 1700 individuals, supporting more people than ever before! We’re incredibly proud to share their inspiring stories, journeys, and successes. 

A snapshot of our impact 

Over this past year, we have continued to support individuals in the local community through our services: Employment and Careers support; Education and Training; Children, Young People and Families; Sector Support; Community Action; Community Research and partnership work. Our work has remained targeted and local, with 81% of the individuals we supported living in Lambeth.  

Through our adult education courses alone, 635 adults developed their skills, with 154 of them gaining a new qualification. Our Employment and Careers service successfully supported 115 individuals into employment.  The scale and range of our services meant that we also saw increased levels of wellbeing, with both adults and young people reporting improvements. Notably, 77% of adults in our education courses made new friends, and 88% of young people attending our school coaching sessions reported feeling more confident and independent. 

Our community organising work has forged stronger connections among individuals and communities. The listening campaign on the Tulse Hill Estate engaged 284 residents, leading to the formation of the ‘Tulse Hill Estate Unites’ resident group. This group, with support from our Community Action team, is currently campaigning to address structural damp and mould issues on the estate. 

Our partnership works has also played a pivotal role in strengthening the voluntary and community sector. This year, we collaborated with fifteen Lambeth-based organisations, across five distinct partnerships. Through the Lambeth Community Hubs Network we published 19 free resources and as part of the Building Young Brixton partnership, we supported a total of 3,493 young people across Lambeth.  

We have also supported communities and VCS organisations to amplify their voices and drive change. The Lambeth Peer Action Collective engaged 258 young people in social action projects, building on their research into understanding young people’s experiences of violence in Lambeth. Additionally, residents from the Fields Estate were supported in their engagement with local housing associations, working towards establishing a Tenant and Resident Association (TRA) on the estate.
