The CSJ is unique amongst think tanks in having an alliance of over 350 grassroots charities and small voluntary organisations that are working to tackle social issues in the most disadvantaged parts of Britain.
This week we feature one of our CSJ Award winners, a charity who work with young children in one of the most deprived areas in London. Scene and Heard use a novel approach to improve children’s confidence, literacy skills and attitudes towards education.
Working with professional actors and script writers the children take part in an intensive one to one training course, which not only helps to develop their communication and social skills. It also culminates in a public production of their work - in which they are centre stage.
One of their courses is coming to an end this week, with final performances taking place this weekend.
