How this cause brings people in the community together

This project will help participants into mainstream jobs and build the confidence to develop their own events and enterprises, enabling them and their families to become financially stable and build social networks. The project will change the landscape, experience, and opportunities for all Lewisham residents by encouraging living wage employers, local commerce, and equality of opportunity.
