Description

Rotherhithe and its surrounding areas have always been one of the country's most deprived communities. SE16 has seen considerable changes in its population composition, landscape and available opportunities. These changes are slowly creating divisions between the established communities and new residents. It is our belief that by working with children we can create long term systemic changes in our community that will bring people together and create a cohesive and understanding community. That is why the 3R's project will focus on the most marginalised and isolated groups in the area - children from lower socio-economic backgrounds. Providing educational and social opportunities that might not currently be available to them. The project is providing out of school educational and recreational opportunities to children and young people from lower socio-economic backgrounds through: creative and restorative justice workshops participation in community exhibitions online competitions and award ceremonies Through these workshops, exhibitions and ceremonies, the 3R's project hopes to educate children and young people, and provide them with valuable social experiences.
