Covid Response - Healthy Lives

The Healthy Lives project is there to improve the physical and mental wellbeing of our community and support them in creating a healthier future for themselves and their families. We support with bereavement, depression and anxiety by helping our community members access therapy and counselling services. We facilitate physical activities and education about healthy eating. The physical activities that we run very much depend on the interests of our community. Tai Chi (potentially outdoors), walking experiences and general exercise sessions are available to improve fitness. Heathy eating sessions take place, introducing participants to heathy meal options and how to prepare them. We hope to have a socially distanced picnic in the spring.

Open Wednesdays 12:00-13:30pm

Global Skills for the 21st Century Workplace


The aim of the Global Skills Project is to help young people in Islington aged between 17-24 develop the skills they will need in today’s global economy. The training will give the participants skills that are valuable in 21st century society and the workplace and will empower participants to organise and create a fundraising event for LPPI. It will help build their confidence and self-esteem and give them an opportunity to celebrate their achievements via a graduation ceremony. They will have access to a learning mentor to support them throughout their journey who will make sure that they are able to complete the project successfully. They will attend workshops in the following areas: teamwork and leadership skills; IT skills; problem-solving skills; public speaking; entrepreneurship; project management; and conflict resolution. The project will take place at Light Project Pro International community hub at the Exchange on Watkinson Road. 15 participants will attend a series of workshops across seven months, in month 8 they will organise a fundraising event for the charity and in month 9 they will have a course graduation event. Throughout the course their learning mentor will support them with employment and educational applications as well as course content. The sessions utilise the participants' learning styles and involve varied teaching techniques which will involve group work, presentations and the use of media.
