Our projects

We are currently running projects to work with Youth at Risk from a life of criminality or violence, homeless people & people with mental health issues as well as giving out special awards to those who deserve the help & praise. Read on to find out more...

Our projects usually each have three key contributors:

Ambassador

A high profile person with a passion for the problem who uses their contacts and notoriety to bring visibility to the project and help raise funds to support the project.

Sponsor

An individual or business with a passion for the problem who provides seed funding at the outset of the project.

Project Management

A day to day manager who puts together a project plan of how WBC Cares can make a difference and implements that plan.

Youth at Risk

We were initially drawn to this problem by the shocking increase in knife crime. We met with various experts in the subject to learn more about the problem. Our conclusion was that the problem was better tackled at its root cause by addressing the wider issue of disenfranchised youths who get into trouble with the police and justice system in general. We felt that a boxing programme offers the potential to provide these youths with help in a wide range of areas:

• A safe place to go and spend time
• Anger management
• Self-confidence and improved self esteem
• Spending time with positive role models


We have now developed a boxing programme that can be adopted by a boxing gym or youth centre to help local youths. A key aspect of this programme is that WBC Cares funds the running of the programme.

We have piloted the programme in a boxing gym in Croydon where knife crime is a serious issue and many of the youths who join the programme have been apprehended by the police with knives. Based upon the success of the pilot we are now rolling he programme to the gyms across London. The programme includes a complete set of processes and forms that enable the gym to work effectively with the local Youth Offending Team who can then refer offenders to join the programme.


Homelessness

People become homeless for lots of different reasons. There are social causes of homelessness, such as a lack of affordable housing, poverty and unemployment; and life events which cause individuals to become homeless.

People can become homeless when they leave prison, care or the army with no home to go to. Many homeless women have escaped a violent relationship.

Many people become homeless because they can no longer afford the rent.

And for many, life events like a relationship breaking down, losing a job, mental or physical health problems, or substance misuse can be the trigger. Being homeless can, in turn, make many of these problems even harder to resolve.


WBC Cares aims to tackle the problem head on & we are currently meeting with key stakeholders to formulate a sustainable plan to assist and aid in the solution - details of which will be released very soon.

From time to time we become aware of individuals who have made exceptional contributions to society or who are in particular need of support and care. In these situations WBC Cares can make a special award to give recognition to the person.

This may be financial support or it may be the award of certificates & medals to recognise another true champion.
