WoW Intergenerational lunch with the young refugees from Headstart

In light of their outstanding work in mentoring UK youth in Intergenerational work, Women of Wandsworth have been asked to mentor the youth from Headstart Refugee Project, through The Challenge organisation. Aim of this project is to deliver social action that will allow young refugees, who came legally to this country, the chance to socially mix, through running activities and enjoy games with people they would not usually meet, while getting involved in their community.

Headstart project is a volunteering and employment program for young people. This is being piloted in Wandsworth, with the young refugees from CARAS organisation to help them to get into employment.

These young refugees cooked a three course lunch for elderly from Battersea and organised fun games and Bingo for them with Wow Mums support.


Big Local SW11 and Battersea Alliance are all about strengthening our community by local residents and organisations working together to decide and create what we want for Battersea.
