Thank you.

Thank you for coming to the launch of The Promise Academy at The Winch last Thursday. Over 150 local residents, councillors and business representatives joined our children, young people, families, staff and volunteers for the unveiling of an inspiring scheme which has been over two years in the making. The excellent coverage we received in this week's Camden New Journal and Ham & High are a tribute to an ambitious and timely vision which is primarily about one thing: making good on our promise to - and the promise of - children and young people.


We've been encouraged and energised by your offers of support and the fantastic feedback we've received, so we wanted to make it clear how you can get involved in making The Promise Academy a success. Below, we've included three of the best ways: become a friend, be the team and hire our space. In the meantime, we promise to keep you informed over the coming weeks and months. There's much more to The Promise Academy than could be shared in one evening, so as well as e-newsletters please check out our blogs, videos, events and publications.


It's time for new dreams.



Become a friend.

The Friends Scheme is about people making small regular donations and will make our work more sustainable, resilient and community-powered. We're aiming to make 250 Friends in the next twelve months. At an average of £20 per month, plus Gift Aid, that will halve our dependency on statutory funding by the end of 2012. To find out more download our pack, fill in the forms and post them back (or drop them in).

Be the team.

Everyone has something to offer: connections, expertise, skills or time. To read a little more about our 'Build The Team' approach click here to download the leaflet. We'll be having an open evening on Monday 30th January for anyone and everyone who wants to support The Promise Academy. To book your place, email us on buildtheteam@thewinch.org. (If you want to get in touch sooner or have other questions, we'd also love to hear from you.)

Hire our space.

Hire our space: it sounds simple, but it's amazing how many people don't realise what we have available. At 21 Winchester Road, we have a variety of different rooms open seven days a week which can be used for dance sessions, children's birthdays, educational classes and a range of other activities. New hirers receive 20% off their first booking and discounts for weekly bookings. For more information phone or email Rachel on 020 7586 8731 or info@thewinch.org.
