Shadwell Basin Outdoor Activity Centre
Aldgate and Allhallows Foundation has awarded over £46,000 since 2015 to the Shadwell Basin Outdoor Activity Centre’s Youth Project, which provides a range of exciting outdoor learning opportunities for children and young people from Tower Hamlets. This video shows some of the fantastic activities that took place in 2018!
The Foundation funded the Tower Hamlets Education Business Partnership to hold the Pathways to Apprenticeships event 2016. This was a brand new event for sixth form students across the borough, which specifically focused on advanced and higher level apprenticeship options. Each school in the borough brought year 12 and/or 13 students to the event where they attended a workshop designed to get them thinking about how to speak to potential employers, the types of questions to ask and, most importantly, what they can do to follow up after the event. Students then attended the apprenticeship fair where they had the opportunity to speak to a range organisations about the advanced and higher level opportunities that were on offer.

The Box Clever Theatre Company’s Hate Play Project in Tower Hamlets came to an exciting conclusion with a special symposium on the 4th December 2013 at the People’s Palace, Queen Mary, University of London. The Hate Play portrays the devastating impact of victimisation and hate crime on young people.
The project which was generously supported by the Foundation over a three year period involved students from eight secondary schools in Tower Hamlets. The idea of a symposium originated at the Foundation and gave an opportunity for over two hundred and fifty people to see the work with a special presentation by the company, a short film of the project was shown and there were readings by the young people involved.
There was also an in depth discussion by the students on the value of the work and the ways in which the project could be sustained and developed further.
The Foundation is grateful to Queen Mary, University of London for providing access to the People’s Palace for no consideration.
