Young Westminster Foundation
The Hand That Helps

Film & Campaign Description

'The Hand That Helps' was directed by Jonathan Haldon as part of Media Trust's 2021 Volunteer Films project, supported by John Lyon's Charity.

Created using the words of young people and youth workers, it launched Young Westminster Foundation's Helping Hands Programme, a shared community approach which addresses the growing issue of youth violence in the borough.

Working collaboratively with local youth clubs and strategic partners, the programme champions the life-changing impact of community spaces and youth workers in keeping Westminster's young people safe.
