Paul Hamlyn Foundation The Winch is a North Camden charity which offers a “cradle to career” pipeline of group and intensive one-to-one activities for children and young people aged 0-25 and their parents. Our grant will part-fund the salary of the Chief Executive as The Winch seeks to consolidate good practice following a period of rapid growth. In particular it will free him to further develop The North Camden Zone, a collective impact approach to working with children and young people, and to plan the charity's move to a major new youth community venue in the area. This builds on the organisation's work as a leader in applying impact measurement to open-access youth work, working with approximately 450 young people aged 11-25 last year.
