Kingsway Project is a voluntary organisation, with strong evidence of effectively working with Youths, Women’s groups and Seniors successfully by conducting community events, training and consultations. The Project also has a facilitating role, liaising, co-ordinating, and promoting shared activities to ensure that local people have a say in housing, community safety, heritage, leisure, play services, social care and health provision. Our aim is to enhance cohesion, and empower the community to be active citizens through community events, education and training.
Our regular activities includes free workshops throughout the year on self esteem, confidence building, money management and healthy living, delivered to individuals and small groups in the community. We organise activities for youths and community especially during the school holidays and have a facilitating role, liaising, co-ordinating, and promoting shared activities to ensure that local people have a say in housing, community safety, leisure, play services, social care and health provision. The project has substantial experience of organising events and working to tight deadlines.
Our work has broadened to produce successful, attractive, informative work in the form of exhibitions, displays and booklets such as:
- ‘Jamaica 50,’ which was displayed at the Bham Museum and Arts Gallery in 2012. Smaller panels were produced and on tour in Walsall, Sandwell, Derby, Edinburgh, etc.
- ‘ Caribbean through a Lens’ was on tour in 9 libraries and continues to be displayed at libraries, colleges and community groups across the West Midlands and London. This work was commissioned by the National Archives.
- Windrush 70, a Royal Mail stamp was commissioned by Kingsway Project to celebrate Windrush, visits were made to Tilbury Docks, we were a part of the committee organising the Windrush service at Westminster Abbey, we produced free Windrush Activity books, created and developed large and small Windrush exhibitions across the UK, young people from the project produced a short Windrush video Kingsway Project – Windrush 70 & Beyond and published a book with the story of seniors who came to the UK from 1948
