Winn Gardens Food Bank and Children’s Clubs
Winn Gardens is in the top 20% deprived neighbourhoods in the UK and for various reasons it is difficult to engage families, children and young people in positive activities. It is a diverse and multicultural estate, which has around 18 different ethnicities represented, including families of black African, black Caribbean, Chinese, asian, Slovakian gypsy, eastern European and Indian ethnic heritage.
There is a foodbank which also has clothing, household items, toys and refreshments on offer. The children’s clubs take place in the holidays and see sessions ranging from computer programmes to poetry, multi sports and origami. The children are provided a packed lunch at each session.
