Tutu Foundation receives £100k in funding for Ubuntu Police-Youth Roundtable project
Tutu Foundation UK has been granted £50k from the Sir John Cass Foundation and £50k from the London Mayor’s Office for Police and Crime to spread their Ubuntu Police-Youth Roundtables project to 10 of the most deprived London Boroughs.
The young engagement project, which was piloted in Southwark last year, enables young people to meet their local police officers in a roundtable discussion about key policing policy issues that concern youth in their area.
Prem Goyal, Vice-Patron of the organisation, said: “This is wonderful news. It is fantastic that this project with promotes good community cohesion and youth engagement will be extended to other boroughs, after a very successful trial in Southwark.
“I will continue to support this organisation and its mission to promote social inclusion through its outstanding projects.”
Thanks to Clive Conway, Chairman of Tutu Foundation UK, on securing these fundings.
