Change Up @ Kennington Cross is a charity based in St Anselm's church hall which aims to strengthen our community by providing support and opportunities to those who need them the most. We harness the resources of the community to find local solutions to local problems, focusing first on social exclusion.
We know that with community support, accommodation and employment those marginalised by their circumstances can successfully contribute to their community. By bringing people of all backgrounds and experiences together to share skills and resources, we also aim to address the poverty of relationships in an inner city community.
We use a central community site at St Anselm's as a hub to provide mentoring support, employment opportunities and subsidised business premises as a path into longer term employment and community participation. In the longer term we hope to also provide accommodation on site.
