Co-founder Bevali has been up to in lockdown, working alongside volunteers @ NLCC providing hot meals to the vulnerable in Haringey. We provide 450 meals a day.
OUR AMBASSADORS ARE STILL ACTIVE DURING LOCKDOWN
Being a young single mum, Louise was not really coping well at home. She wanted to do more activities with her toddler and felt she needed some help keeping him occupied, so her mother Venessa Bobb, founder of A2ndVoice Autism charity brought her down to do an online art workshop.
It was really inspiring for Louise and she was a great presenter. When we finish editing you will get to see what she has done online.
(ps everything was done safely, washing our hands, distancing where possible and then washing all equipment before and after use!)
Kai was so excited when he was called up to see whether he would want to be part of a filmed documentary. His first reaction was "YES".
The film crew were from GALEFORCE FILMS and they wanted to capture what community groups were doing during the lockdown. They knew that Bevali was helping out at the North London Community Consortium and that she was helping to feed locals.
What they wanted to know from Kai was how he was coping in isolation. Kai was a pro! He is working on some online ideas for creative art sessions and continuing with his spoken word.
Let's keep the community spirit up!

Here at Code1 Community Group, we know that sometimes all it takes to change the world is a little support. Since our founding, we have been determined to make an impact on young people aged 7 to 16 years old in our borough and the wider communities. We are a group that has come together to engage and excel our young people in the arts, creativity and holistic fields. The core of our efforts is to bring our team’s fresh ideas and passion for the range of activities we’re involved in. We want young people to be at the forefront of all our decision making and events. Through all of our endeavors, we hope to display the conviction behind our beliefs.
“One is not always happy when one is good; but one is always good when one is happy”
HOLISTIC HEALTH & WELLNESS SESSIONS
Reinforcing healthy lifestyles by delivering workshops, cooking classes and fun inter-generational shared social gatherings. We aim to empower our community with the skills to live healthier lives; therefore healthier minds. We run regular away days for women our parents and young people, where we teach them about mental health awareness, nutrition, holistic remedies and GOAL setting
There is a mental health crisis in our school system and a huge increase within the last 5 years. Children are facing even more pressures than ever, exams, social media, cyberbullying and body image and need to develop skills to cope and succeed in today's world.
We offer a safe and secure consistent place for vulnerable young people to find support.
OUR FUTURE LEADERS
One Step at a Time. We start working with our young people from an early age to ensure that we can follow through when building their confidence and self-esteem; especially when faced with challenges such as peer pressure, body image, mental health, and addiction. Our youth team helps to make all our courses a success.
We encourage community ambassadors, befriending, performing arts, arts awarded accreditation as a mean of engagement. With our older young people, we work towards a holistic result and treat each young person individual with a unique approach to person-centred success.
Volunteering with us
Here at Code1 Community Group, we’re committed to investing our expertise and resources in order to further achieve our cause. We aim to support our community members in a variety of ways and measuring our success not by monetary size, but by more qualitative measurements such as the scale and effectiveness of our efforts. Just imagine what we can achieve together!
We need volunteers and mentors who have a spare afternoon each week or each month to support our young people to achieve their project goals. We need mentors, teachers, parents, carers, artist and anyone who feels they would like to invest in the lives of the next generation.

Due to the current devastating situation, all of our workshops and sessions have stopped. We have identified a huge amount of families and vulnerable people within the community that are going to be in need of help IMMEDIATELY! Alongside the North London Community Consortium, we have already organised food donation drop off points and will be working with the council to deliver hot meals to those individuals who cannot cook for themselves and are isolated.
WE ARE ALSO ORGANISING ONLINE SESSIONS TO KEEP YOU ALL BUSY !!
