The Project Overview

Angell Delight Dwayne Simpson (DS) Boxing Club (ADDSBC) was founded in 2013 by the late DS, a young resident of Angell Town who was murdered by knife crime in Brixton 2014. He was successful in gathering up to thirty youths from Angell Town Estate and Lambeth to engage in boxing/ fitness sessions to help himself and the young participants to condition their minds, bodies and emotions in a healthy positive way. His aim was to set up a Professional Boxing Club in the estate. Since the death of DS the participants dispersed into the community and a few into prison but Angell Delight Community Centre (ADCC)Manager & Minister, Lorraine Jones, the mother of the late DS has re-started the Boxing / Fitness project and has managed to re-engage with the youth, who Minister Lorraine works closely with on a daily basis in the community. The Project is run by a Manager with a Management Team networking with Professional Senior external Support from Brixton Police and Miguel’s Professional Boxing Club. We also have several qualified Boxing Trainers volunteering their services to help facilitate our service. The aims and objectives of this project have not changed from the founder’s vision and is a tool of engagement to rehabilitate and develop positively our service users physical, mental and emotional health.

ADDSBC is one of the Projects which works in harmony with ADCC as it is a part of the identified requested projects from the residents of Angell Town. Angell Delight have formed a Youth Management Team which works on steering plans forempowerment workshops of their choice, to be facilitated to empower the youth and young people in Angell Town and Lambeth. There have been several deaths of young people who were resident’s of Angell Town who died through Knife Crime. Gang violence is a public health issue and high risk in communities facing diverse problems and poverty. Our workshops are arecruitment tool to engage with young people to steer them away from crime and into positive engagement, primarily, but not exclusively, disengaged from mainstream education and training.

Gang and youth violence have had a distressing impact on individuals and families in our community, which has impacted on the health and well being of residents, including young people. We are addressing this problem by having a user involvement planning approach and engagement with the residents and young people in Lambeth. Through our strategic plan of engagement and networking at senior level for support ie; our Local Cllrs, Borough Commander and specialist agencies such as Ingeus, (Ms Lionne Whitfield) who covers Career development for our service users, we are having very positive outcomes in a short spectrum of time.

The youth Management Team are working under the Supervision of the Senior Youth Management Team which is Minister Lorraine Jones (Chair), Mary Ekenachi (Centre Manager) and Mrs Marcia Enin (Level 3 Health and Social Care). Workshops have been identified already which are;

  • Life Skills
  • Drug Misuse Awareness
  • First Aid
  • Employment Preparation
  • Scholarships
  • Career development
  • Apprentiships
  • Policing (bridging the gap and knowing your rights when engaging with the police)
  • Mentoring

Our service users for these two Projects are from the age of 10 years to 24; both male and female.

Since the death of DS we have successfully managed to organise a First Aid course which was delivered by St John’s Ambulance in April 2014 in Brixton Assembly Hall where 20 young people passed and received a three year First Aid Qualified Certificate.

We have also affiliated ourselves with Ingeus (Lionne Whitfield) who comes to the Centre to deliver Career advice work shops and then further extensive work depending on her assessment with them at her office, where our service users can go to work with her in a more private environment. We have had excellent feedback from the young people that are accessing Lionne’s support, which is vital.

We are now currently delivering the boxing/ fitness club every Saturday from 3.30pm – 5pm female fitness class then 5pm – 7pm ADDSBC, both male and female, at Angell Delight Community Centre. We are also having frequent youth planning meetings during the week in the evenings.

Due to the success of this project we do need a second building to facilitate a fully equipped gym. We have identified a property which we would like to facilitate this in our Community; it is the Boiler House hall in Angell Town Estate which would be the best place for our youth.

Miguel Professional Boxing Club in Loughborough is our local referral advance Centre where we will filter our service users who want to stay within the local community and advance onto a higher level of boxing training.

As Angell Delight Community Centre is run by the Community we are responsible to seek out funding and sponsorship to enable us to maintain the Centre, facilitate the workshops and purchase the equipment needed. We have identified three focused outcomes vital for our Community with are Social, Environmental and Economic.

Socially we aim for;

  • Our community to feel safer and stronger
  • People are healthier for longer
  • Vulnerable children and adults get support and are protected
  • Crime reduction
  • Our residents feeling they are valued and a part of their neighbourhood

Environmentally;

  • Residents take greater responsibility for our community
  • Lambeth plays a strong role in London’s economy
  • Residents have better quality of homes
  • People to live in, work in, and visit our vibrant creative community

Economically;

  • All young people have opportunities to achieve their ambitions
  • People have the skills to find work
  • People achieve financial security

We have projects which have been requested by the residents which we are also running; some are not on a regular basis due to funding. These projects are:

  • Tea/ Coffee Social Morning for residents
  • Hot Dinner club for the homeless and those in hardship
  • Computer training
  • Arts and Craft
  • Health and well being
  • Professional/ Legal advice drop in session
