What We Do - Our Projects
Camden People First is involved in a range of projects. If you would like more information about any of our projects please call us on 020 7388 2007 We would love to hear from you.
We have regular members meetings as well as trustee meetings. The members and trustees meetings are held monthly, but not in August or November when Camden People First (CPF) is on recess.
Members are given the opportunity to tell us the topics they would like to cover throughout the year. Sometimes the topics can be adjusted to fit the Planning Together or Learning Disability Forum meetings.
This gives members the opportunity to contribute to Camden Council's meetings and allows CPF to do presentations and fully participate at these meetings.
The meetings are conducted in Easy Read, with the use of a projector to make the meetings more visual, and inclusive. Members have the opportunity to ask questions and raise queries or concerns which the coordinator aims to address.
Camden Council and other public sector workers attend some of our meetings, the police, TfL, the local housing service, care providers and many more.
Disability hate and mate crime project
We have a Disability Hate and Mate Crime team made up of adults with learning difficulties who hold a focus group every Monday. Personal experiences of these crimes are shared and peers provide victims with emotional support. We also use the focus group to come up with plans and ideas that address disability hate and mate crime and then carry them out to make a change in our community.
We run peer-led workshop presentations to professionals, key agencies, schools, colleges, housing associations, the Met Police and more. Presentations focus on bringing awareness, sharing experiences, good practice in support and encourages reporting disability hate and mate crimes.
We support victims of disability hate and mate crime through casework and advise them to report to relevant professionals, i.e. the Police, Victim support for further intervention. We support victims to attend safeguarding meetings. We are listed as a third party reporting centre for Disability hate and mate crime on the Camden Council website.
We do peer to peer support in-house with basic office work; i.e. members help peers with shredding, answering the phone, put labels on envelopes.
Other forms of peer-to-peer support include assistance with form filling; i.e. helping someone fill out a passport application, NHS questionnaires and we also break things down into easy read.
