MOVE is a community organisation operating in West London, which delivers
bespoke workshops, projects and events combining personal development,
creative education and sports as a tool to unite and empower
communities.

Founded in 2012 by Rachael Johnson, a youth/community facilitator & social entrepreneur, the organisation aims to respond to the reality of inner city living and our modern world, which can leave individuals feeling isolated, depressed and at times confused with what their community has to offer them.

“Working in various charities with vulnerable groups in our community, i learnt a lot about the complex issues that people were facing.
Alcohol & drug abuse, gangs, negative relationships and mental health issues were symptoms of loneliness and depression, which came from feeling overwhelmed by the pressures of society with nowhere and no-one to turn to.
I felt disheartened that people were experiencing such a lack of social connection and meaningful, empowering spaces to come together.

MOVE was created to move people closer together… to learn, connect and thrive.

 

 

Our mission is to create safe, informative
and inspiring spaces for people to ‘move together’,
mentally & physically. Improving the quality of
people’s lives in the places they live, with a focus on
empowering the individual & in doing so the whole
community.

We have done this through our various
projects including FLY and JUMP LDN (Double
Dutch Skipping). We also partner with other like
minded organisations on creative & educational
community events & workshops.

We are a small team of dedicated and active
facilitators with a passion for working in personal and
community development.

 

Our Aims :

– Develop relevant and effective workshops
& projects which combine personal
development, creative education & sports.

– Create safe spaces within communities to
unite & empower people.

– Provide positive experiences & community role models for
socially disadvantaged young people.
