We seek to provide local network groups that encourage & enable effective participation with the wider community, through education, training and advocacy in the following areas; HEALTH, EDUCATION, BUSINESS, COMMUNITY
We strive to increase, and/or co-ordinate opportunities to engage with service providers, to enable those providers to adapt services to better meet the needs of that community & develop services and projects which address issues of social isolation.
Nashat simply means energy. We’re running a fundraising challenge to raise £1 million. We are an African Cultural Centre that invigorates the mind, body, spirit and soul with the aim to unify and enhance the dynamics of our partners and communities. We offer a wide variety of products and services for all occasions and age groups. So why not come and explore? There is something here for everyone.
We provide workshops for local authorities, community groups, governmental organisations, schools and voluntary groups. This is done through our Personal and Business Development programme as an access and referral point. We aim to build a strong community for young people, entrepreneurs and the elderly, all of whom are our target audience.
We build communities, network and collaborate with like-minded people to achieve success. Our definition of success is“the progressive realisation of a worthy ideal.”

The Walk to Freedom believes in its services and we challenge some of the more dated approaches to drug and/or alcohol dependency, training and adolescent antisocial behaviour in relation to serious youth violence, gang exploitation, knife crime and adolescent drug abuse. By thinking differently with our newly designed and innovative programmes, workshops , mentoring and talks
The Walk To Freedom is in a class of its own delivering a quality service to the local community and nationwide based on the needs of its clients, not on what we think they need.
Referrals are received from the Children in Care,Virtual Schools, Adult and Children Social Services Youth Offender, Probation Services, Education Authorities, Corporate Employers and self referrals.
Founded in 2011, we are run from the foundation up by an ex service user peer led team of highly trained and qualified staff and volunteers, many of whom are able to draw upon personal experiences of conquering dependency and antisocial behaviour. Increasing our team’s capacity to directly empathise with the complex challenges facing users and young people. provides our programmes with a unique perspective that in 10 years has seen many lives freed from addiction and adolescent antisocial behaviour.
We have also successfully seen young people returned to full time education, employment, a number of young people exit from antisocial behaviour, gang and knife crime and we have had a very high success rate in young people who have stopped using recreational drugs or the abuse of them through our back door approach to substance misuse.
Where there has been situations of early pregnancy we have also supported young people through their drug use successfully that their babies were born healthy. Every single ex offender that we have supported has being reported to never have offended again thus far. Being that we work with the social services and other council run youth services reports and updates are always updated on clients who leave our programme for up to or over a year. We also have what’s called an open door policy where we keep open dialogue with former clients. Whilst clients are on our programme we use the Outcome Stars tool, and pre,mid and end feedback questionnaires to monitor each clients progress.
