They also offer community projects, including Kitchen Social [link] which has 60 food hubs across London, and training courses. In partnership with Hyde and Southern Housing, Prospex leads weekly detached and outreach sessions for young people, aged 11-24, engaging with young people on estates to support their needs, signpost them to local opportunities and encourage them to reach their potential. This could be through sports, further education, enhanced employment opportunities or just having someone to speak to.
