The London riots: Small community charities where business can help

Thanks to those who responded to my recent post around good community initiatives in London for business to consider in response to the recent troubles.

Aside from the two I mentioned, here’s a few more, hope they might be useful:

Live Magazine

Live is a free quarterly magazine, website and community created entirely by young people aged 14-22 where they cultivate their creative talents and learn alongside established media professionals in funky offices in Brixton.

Last year they launched a Live East for young people in east London and are still looking for a business partner that would support them in producing a Live North for north London young people.

Business support needed is pro bono. i.e. Cheap shared office space, business mentoring, the model is social enterprise: http://live-magazine.co.uk

New Horizons Youth Centre in Kings Cross: http://www.nhyouthcentre.org.uk

The Complete Works:

A London based charity that aims to promote the advancement of education for young people. They work with young people excluded from mainstream education, young offenders and those at risk of offending.

They take creative projects into mainstream schools including: plays, film projects and music workshops. The inspiration for creative projects comes from the young people, who set the agenda: www.tcw.org.uk

Any other suggestions would be much appreciated.
