The Edmonton Community Partnership (ECP) began in 2011 when a group of local schools came together to address some of the issues facing our shared communities. Together we have run many local projects to address the complex needs that exist within Edmonton, providing support for our schools and the local community.
We have run a wide range of projects, from language lessons for adults to cooking classes for kids. Whether it is counselling for vulnerable children or a live performance from our school’s most promising young creatives, our initiatives are about helping people unleash their full potential.
Edmonton is an area in which many people live in deprivation, with new immigrants struggling with social isolation, child poverty rates of 53% (well above the national average of 21%), and issues around youth violence. This means there are many who need extra support to gain access to the opportunities they deserve.
ECP’s projects and initiatives bring people together and give them the tools they need to thrive. We have strong links with local partner organisations (Enfield Council, Police and many other community and voluntary groups) and are always looking for new ways to make a difference to the lives of local people.
