Partnerships are central to High Trees’ work. We believe we have a role to play in creating a collaborative and connected Lambeth, and that partnership working is one of the key things that will allow the VCS sector to thrive – and when we thrive our beneficiaries can too. We don’t have a one size fits model when it comes to partnerships – some are more formal with joint funding and joint objectives, some are about understanding where the most suitable services lie elsewhere and effective referral routes to ensure residents can access the most appropriate services for their needs, sometimes it’s about supporting those organisations who are smaller than us and sharing our learning and best practice and sometimes it’s about lessons we learn from others experience and expertise.
You can find out about some of our more formal partnerships below, which sit alongside the many other ways we’re committed to joint working in Lambeth.
Building Young Brixton is a partnership of 9 charities led by High Trees, working to inspire and empower young people in Brixton to fulfill their ambitions and lead the lives that they want.
Founded in 2011, Lambeth Hubs is a partnership of 5 community anchor charities in Lambeth that provide place based provision in their local areas. The Hubs collaborate to strengthen their reach and practice, ensuring their shared vision of achieving a more equal, inclusive and thriving Lambeth, for individuals who access their services and the VCS sector as a whole.
The Connecting Tulse Hill Partnership want to make sure that individuals and families are able to access the remote support and services they need duirng the uncertainty of the Covid-19 pandemic. The move to remote delivery of many key services has left certain individuals isolated and excluded during this time. The digital world we live in means that wifi access is no longer a luxury, it is a basic utility, with many households still excluded.
