The area that the Knowledge Quarter spans has undergone major changes in recent years. The impact that this has had on the local community, particularly in terms of access to employment is yet to be fully understood.
Despite this, we know that local organisations are already putting in place different interventions to mitigate these effects and give back to the local community. In particular, Knowledge Quarter partners are leading in addressing these challenges for the local community.
We could all be achieving more, together.
This is an interactive event to explore how joint initiatives across the Knowledge Quarter and local partners could better support the local communities across Camden and Islington in a meaningful way.
During the event we will:
- Present secondary research conducted by the Knowledge Quarter and Impact Hub King’s Cross to introduce the identified community needs regarding access to employment and the main barriers.
- Lead a group activity to identify current and previous initiatives to help those underserved communities transition to entrepreneurship
- Identify current gaps and potential points of collaboration
- Brainstorm new initiatives and next steps for KQ partners, local partners and key stakeholders to support underserved local communities transition from unemployment to self-employment through entrepreneurship.
