The Knowledge Quarter (KQ) would like to invite you to the launch of the Community Champions project. The launch event will bring Knowledge Quarter partners together with local charities and community groups based across Camden and Islington, to encourage partners to develop collaborative projects around the themes of youth, employability, environment, wellbeing and nexus. This project has initially been developed by KQ Community Engagement sub-group in discussion with community representatives, however the launch brings the opportunity to share the programme more widely.
KQ Community Champions aims to increase community participation and involvement with the resources of Knowledge Quarter partners. Over the next year the goals are to bring together organisations working in similar themes in community engagement, to catalyse mutually beneficial networking and partnerships within the area. Come to the launch to hear more; you will hear case study examples of existing great practice in community-KQ partnerships, and meet people from charities and KQ partners, who work in the area. You can find out about the scope of the theme areas, and register your organisation to be involved in events focussed on each theme.
We will also be asking for input from attendees to shape the skills covered by capacity building workshops which will take place during the year.
