GlamSci

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.

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.
