Camden Giving Week
13-19 May 2019
Camden Giving Week is back for its second year!
This week is dedicated to raise awareness for poverty and inequality in Camden; the ‘invisible’ Camden to many who visit and work here. As this is our only fundraising event throughout the year, we want more businesses participating to make even more impact and support us to make Camden a fairer place for everyone. Especially, now, when local action is more important than ever.
If you are a local business, social enterprise or community group and you want to do something during this week. Read below on how to get involved.
Why Camden Giving Week?
Camden Giving Week is our one and only fundraising event throughout the year. We have big dreams for 2019, but we can only make this happen with the support of local businesses.
Inequality in Camden is growing year on year, a third of children in Camden live in poverty and average life expectancy in the poorest wards is 10 years less than the wealthiest wards.
Knife crime is higher than anywhere else in the UK
Homeless in Camden has risen by over 600% in the last 12 months.
This Camden Giving Week will help us to pool funds for disability, youth empowerment, women and inquality, to keep supporting small local charities with workshops, specialist support, and capacity building events.
