Peabody is one of the oldest and largest housing organisations in London. It is committed to supporting the people of London through its bold and forward-thinking ideas.
Peabody is the lead partner in this programme and is actively seeking to give young people a voice in their communities.
Peabody is keen to see young residents get involved with their neighbourhoods through positive activity as it recognises that youth engagement is highly important to the local community as well as the wider society. This programme is only one of the specialist programmes that Peabody is participating in which is helping to motivate young people through creative activity and challenges.
