Kentish Town Community Champions

Community Champions 

Community Champions is a 3-year funded project from Public Health Camden and Islington to develop activity which promotes health and well-being. This project is volunteer led, the volunteers (Community Champions) will shape all the work we do and decide how time and money is spent for their own community. Elfrida Rathbone Camden is the host organisation leading the Kentish Town area. 

The project will support vulnerable individuals, families, and groups as well as many other residents. This project is specifically aimed at engaging with the local community on the Torriano, Peckwater and Oseney Crescent estates and Kenbrook House in Kentish Town, as well as with the wider Camden community.  

Community Champions aims to build on community strengths, tackle health inequalities and develop healthy living strategies. This will be based off the needs and wants of the local community. 

There are three community champions projects in Camden: 

  • Elfrida Rathbone for Kentish Town Peckwater and Torriano Estates, Kenbrook House and Osney  Crescent 
  • SHAK for Kilburn Vale, Webheath, Kingsgate and Sidings estates
