Visit to the House of Lords
On Monday 10th October, Jose, Gentjan and Miss Grace were invited to meet with Dame Tessa Jowell at the House of Lords. The purpose of the visit was to discuss the London Citizens City Safe Campaign. Dame Tessa Jowell is a patron and supporter of the City Safe Campaign. City Safe is a community-led campaign from London Citizens to tackle crime and reconnect fractured neighbourhoods. The campaign sees teams of young people building relationships with local shopkeepers and business owners to open their premises as CitySafe Havens. These are places of safety for people in immediate danger; whose have staff have also pledged to report 100% of crime to the police. Newman Catholic College have set up a City Safe Haven in Harlesden with over sixty businesses supporting this initiative. We will have our official City Safe launch on Wednesday November 30th.
