Oak London seeks to equip young men aged 18 and above at risk of offending with the means to change the direction of their lives through the provision of a residential course and mentoring programme. It will launch in the aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic, a time when gang and crime involvement has increased due to lack of opportunity, and face to face intervention is needed more than ever. Oak London is a project of Bethnal Green Mission Church and exists to promote reconciliation and reconnection within communities and see young men choose to leave lives of crime.
We are launching Oak London in September 2021, with 3 pilot programmes over the course of the first year and then in September 2022 we hope to run the full programme!
Each pilot costs £8K, so we are hoping to raise £24K and would like to invite you to become a pioneer funder in one of the following ways:
- Give as an individual. You can either give a one off amount by clicking here or commit to giving monthly by clicking here.
- Link your church as a supporter of Oak London.
- Hold a fundraiser.
- Explore whether your workplace could become a partner of Oak London through their commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility.
