About Organisation

Making Communities Work and Grow (MCWG) offers disadvantaged young people and families regular opportunities for recreation and learning to help them build the skills and confidence to reach their full potential.

We’re a community organisation working mostly with young people from black and ethnic minority (BME) backgrounds in the London borough of Kensington and Chelsea, which has the second-highest percentage of Arabic-speaking residents in the UK.

From football training to cookery lessons, help with schoolwork, group trips, employment support, counselling and advice on mental health, we work actively to enable children and young adults to engage in and contribute to wider society.

We offer a range of activities from our centre in North Kensington:

- Weekly youth clubs for boys and girls

- Sports events and weekly training sessions (football, martial arts, keep-fit, circuit training)

- Cookery classes and nutritional advice

- Homework clubs for children aged 6-14 years

- Supplementary Saturday school for children aged 5-14 years, providing National Curriculum support, Arabic language and Islamic studies

- Employment skills support

- Mother tongue counselling with mental health charity Mind

- Mental health first aid courses for parents and young adults of 18+

- Strengthening families, strengthening communities courses for parents

- Violence prevention projects

- Mother/daughter projects
