GlamSci is a non-profit STEM diversity educational charity, based in Greater London. We create bespoke hands-on events for Schools, Colleges, Local Businesses and Local Community Projects.

At GlamSci, we are dedicated to helping disadvantaged men and women into careers and education in STEM.

GlamSci’s vision is to take STEM out of the classroom scenario, putting it back into the local community, giving people the reins to control their own educational journey by guiding them through STEM education, building trust and confidence, and get them involved in the world of endless possibilities that a career in STEM promises.

As a diversity project, GlamSci aims to empower students through STEM, to help overcome adversity, break barriers and build resilience. GlamSci aims to support all marginalised groups, including NEET Students, those with gang history, LGBT+ and SEN students, build up their STEM skills, securing work experience placements and support them into further studies or into STEM careers.

Bexley adolescent support service - Porchlight

Some young people need additional support to help them reach their full potential. That’s where BASS can help.
The service works with 8-17 year olds across Bexley, providing one-to-one support at home, in school, or anywhere the young person feels safe.

We’ve designed the service to help young people with all kinds of support needs, whether they’re having difficulty managing their relationships, getting into trouble at school or having problems at home that are affecting their education.
Our support workers make young people feel valued and listened to. We can help them to develop the social, emotional and relationship skills they’ll need throughout life.
Over a period of up to 12 weeks, we work with the young person to develop and follow a support plan containing achievable goals specific to their situation and needs.
Creative approaches are used to engage with even the hardest-to-reach young people, building connections through activities.
We also work alongside other practitioners and services to develop the young person’s relationships with their family, community and school.

We support young people on a 121 basis that meet at least one of the following criteria:
• At risk of exclusion from education
• Poor attendance in education
• Poor behaviour in education
• Family difficulties – e.g. domestic abuse – impacting on education

Blackfen Community Library ( New Generation Community Trust)

We are a community library in the heart of Blackfen High Street and our vision is to have an 'open door' for our community - providing opportunities to access a great world of books in a comforting 'third space' – a home away from home. We believe our library space offers us the opportunity to not only cater for specific population groups, such as children, families, students, the unemployed, carers, the retired and anyone who needs a place to belong – but also a brilliant way to bring different groups in our community together. Our motto is 'a big hello' - a warm greeting and welcoming space for everyone – including those who may not always feel welcome elsewhere. Our coffee shop is a central part of our library and we run various programmes and events in the space to bring our community together. We have big ideas for the future and our staff and volunteers have a big heart to use our space in a big way to impact Blackfen for good.
