For the autumn 2021 Tech Belt allocation, over £25,000 is being awarded to the following projects:

  • Global Generation – Nature Explorers After School Club
  • Rich Mix Cultural – Pic N Mix: Rich Mix Schools Film Education Programme
  • YMCA London City and North – Young People’s Streets Arts
  • National Youth Theatre of Great Britain – Skills for life through inclusive drama
  • Let Me Know – Healthy Relationships and Abuse Prevention programme
  • Head Held High – High Society: Online Zoom club for the elderly to reduce isolation.
The projects chosen were from a broad range of applications received. A community panel was convened with input from officers from the local authorities and staff from Derwent London including its Diversity & Inclusion Committee, to contribute to the decision-making process. There was an impressive range of applications and the successful entries have been selected on the basis that they will offer positive benefits, from social and wellbeing to cultural and the arts.

John Davies, Head of Sustainability at Derwent London, commented:
“It’s been another challenging year for charitable and community groups, and we are glad organisations and projects have managed to continue. The projects will provide for a mix of initiatives to support local communities around our neighbourhoods and we wish them success for the roll-out.”

*The Tech Belt is defined here as the area extending from King’s Cross to Whitechapel, largely covering EC1 & E1
