Clapham Park Project sees its purpose as continuing to make a direct positive impact on the communities we serve and thereby increasing these communities 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. The following three themes emerged from detailed consultation with residents, stakeholders and partners, they were identified as central to C.P.P’s vision:
- Supporting residents and communities (particularly the most vulnerable and marginalised).
- Youth and Aspiration
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. We seek to help currently disadvantaged communities, and the people in them, realise their full potential”.
We will do this by mobilising and engaging with local people and by seeking funding (public and private) for projects and intervention which facilitate community regeneration, growth and general wellbeing.
Our mission can be summarised as:
