Clapham Park Project

Overview

Clapham Park Project was set up in 2001. They work with the community in Clapham Park, helping young people and adults to:

  • improve their skills and find work
  • feel safe from crime and anti-social behaviour
  • get a better education and believe in themselves
  • get healthier and fitter
  • improve their neighbourhood, socialise and make friends.

Clapham Park Project sees its purpose as continuing to make a direct positive impact on the communities they serve and thereby increasing their ability to flourish through enhanced understanding, confidence and empowerment. The core purpose of C.P.P is to make disadvantaged neighbourhoods a better place to live.

C.P.P’s mission is “To help create safe, welcoming and sustainable communities whose members are better able to access the support and help they need, and to develop the skills and confidence to transform their lives.  They seek to help currently disadvantaged communities, and the people in them, realise their full potential”.
