Case study 1:
Increasing capacity of Help UK and The Bradfield Youth Centre.
Help UK is a BAME, female-led community interest company started by Koko Oloko, from her own experience of being a carer for her son, Koko works with parents and carers to support and develop their health & wellbeing.
Bradfield Youth Centre
A youth centre supporting a large BAME community of parents and children vulnerable to social exclusion.
We supported Help UK to deliver smoothie workshops after the Bradfield Youth Centre free fitness sessions for mums.
WHAT DID IT ACHIEVE FOR THE MUMS
They took the recipes home and started making their own smoothies.
They learn about different fruit and veg and methods for smoothie making. Leading onto other conversations around nutrition and fitness.
They got to know each other and have a good laugh after a tough work out session.
I had already been a volunteer writer for Community Bridges, contributing articles centred around all things community for their magazine; when I was asked to collaborate on another project with them, which involved holding a smoothie workshop straight after an intense workout held at the Bradfield Centre in Peckham for local mothers such as myself. This was such a great thing to be a part of; a community of mothers coming together to converse, share and support one and other over a smoothie that we were all a part of making. These are moments you certainly treasure and can recreate over and over again, whilst in the comfort of your home.
