London Futures Disability Employability Programme

What is London Futures?

London Futures is an employability programme for young Londoners (18-25) with learning disabilities and/or mental health problems, facing social isolation and loneliness. Using sport and specialised mentoring, these young Londoners unite to compete in employability challenges to improve their career aspirations and become more integrated in their communities.

How does it work?

London Futures is a 12-month programme that is structured in the following way:

Do you need volunteers to support your events?

If you need volunteers to support your event then the Volunteer Centre Kensington & Chelsea (VCKC) can help.  Their trained K&C Ambassadors Event Volunteers are out and about, rain or shine, helping visitors to navigate between the borough’s popular landmarks. 

They can also provide a range of practical support to help your event run smoothly including;

Free MIDAS Training for Volunteers through the third phase of the innovation fund

Is your group/organisation suffering from reduced funding and income?
Westway CT understands how difficult it is when there is less money coming in, making transport possibly one of the last priorities on the list for some. Their team have been thinking about what help can be offered to reduce your transport costs.

Westway CT is now offering to MiDAS train to up-to two of your Volunteers free of charge through a grant provided via Westway CT’s Innovation Fund.

Office desks and 2 seater black sofa

1 Colville Mews, Lonsdale Road, London W11 2AR

Office desks are available free of charge. They are 1800 x 600 with a side return of 1200mm. The configuration currently is that they are set in clusters with some sharing the middle legs.  Some are right hand return and some are left hand return. They will be available for collection around the 18th April.  The person taking them will ideally dismantle them so they know which bits go where when putting them back together.  The legs need allen keys for the screws.
