Khan grants £150k to Belsize Park youth project

Labour London Assembly Member for Barnet and Camden Andrew Dismore has welcomed a grant to Wac Arts College £150,000 to deliver Stay Safe Project in Belsize Park from The Mayor of London’s Young Londoners Fund.

Stay Safe project will offer educational and positive activities to young people that currently attend Wac Arts College, their peers who are at risk, as well as younger children and young people who find themselves in alternative education without some form of early intervention. Delivering a range of positive activities and exciting projects to engage and motivate so that more in depth work can start to address underlying issues of reckless behaviour.

Mr Dismore said:

‘I am pleased to see this grant from Sadiq Khan for another youth project in Camden. Sadiq has tried his best to step up and support younger Londoners after the savage cuts to youth services by the failed Conservative austerity agenda. Young people in Belsize Park and surrounding areas deserve to be invested in and properly supported.’

Gospel Oak Councillor Larraine Revah said:

‘Both my kids used WAC when they were younger, so I know that this organisation does some amazing work with young people of all abilities. They also work with vulnerable children and people that have disabilities. Most young people using their service from the age of four upwards come out with a great set of skills.’
