Who We are & What We Do
Our work aims to ensure individuals have increased skills and a stronger voice; for life, work and building active, resilient communities
Based in Tulse Hill (Lambeth) in South London, High Trees Community Development Trust is an established community anchor and hub. Registered charity as a charity in 1998, we have now been delivering projects and services to local people for 19 years. Adopting a holistic approach to community development, all the work we do is delivered in a collaborative manner; working with other local and national partners to enhance service delivery, avoid duplication of work and ensure we have an effective referral system.
Guided by the needs of the local community, we deliver and support a range of projects grouped in three interlinked thematic areas:
- Employment, Education and Training Support; Community Learning and accredited training courses, employment support, volunteering opportunities and work placements schemes.
- Children, Young People and Family Services; working on the basis of early intervention, we deliver youth clubs and forums, adventure play, wellbeing projects, self development programmes, mentoring and youth leadership.
- Community Engagement and Development; nurturing and capacity building individuals and community groups to empower them to take local action and develop advocacy skills.
