The Roy Evans Foundation offers community led workshops, mobile training, and group sessions, educational led both non and accredited courses. By offering peer on peer support within our workshops we can bring communities together in many areas. We will also be focusing mainly in areas of performing arts and health and fitness this includes mental wellbeing, which is a big focus, more than ever in the current climate. Current research shows these are the area’s best suited to help reengage both communities and young people that do not engage in the mainstream education system which we recognise is not for everyone. We will also provide full Internal Quality Assurance with any courses that are to be delivered either through our own team or with our suite of partnering providers.
The foundation will target both disadvantaged and help with the most vulnerable of people of all ages, including minority groups, also including young people on the verge of expulsion, with the mental wellbeing of people at the forefront of all we do.
We are also shortly opening our hub, working with the local council we are providing workshops, encouraging peer on peer support with projects such as cooking on a budget, young parent groups, groups for the LGBTQ+ community and much more. We are community led, by asking the community what they need we provide this service.
Our venue is a hub for communities to have a safe environment to meet. Operating as a training venue throughout the day for holistic education, group meetings and workshops for all ages and demographics within the community.
The Roy Evans Foundation will provide clear and manageable goals and frameworks for young people and disadvantaged adults who need – or want – learning and practice to be closely connected. This includes several areas of society including dementia care homes and other vulnerable and disadvantaged adults as an example.
The crux of the learning environment and pedagogy is learning through doing; practical work and the solving of tasks in a working community aimed a real production and marketing of goods and services.
Strong communities are critical, because they are often an important source of social connection and sense of belonging. By engaging the community in our sessions and encouraging participation, is an essential ingredient to enjoying a fulfilling life.
Being part of a community enables us to give support to other members. Being supportive of others will help them to feel good and better about themselves. … When people feel empowered, they feel a sense of control enabling them to influence positive change. This is a vital social connection and engagement tool to boost physical and mental health.
At The Roy Evans Foundation we are bringing communities together and value our inclusive ethos, this foundation is for all. Resilient communities come together and adapt. We are encouraging that at all levels and are led by our own communities to give them the tools they need to grow.
We are looking at external funding to support this project as well as bids we will be applying for to fund our journey also. Any support you may be able to give us around any of the areas would be greatly appreciated to help us make a change and give people the wings they need to fly.
