Children’s & Young People’s Expression
The Nicholas Stewart Project NSP gives young people a voice to express themselves through their writings and art, it could be an essay, poetry, photography or writing a song.
Young people are precious to us, we understand that they go through different challenges and experiences that is not often shared, it could be because of their fear to be judged, not trusting or not being sure how to explain themselves verbally. The NSP also realise that isolation is challenging, especially for the young ones during this COVID -19 pandemic as they are not able to have physical contact with their friends and other families.
The NSP runs writing competitions with local schools in Earlsfield as Jennifer herself found writing therapeutic and a way to cope with her grief and so she wants to encourage writing among young people.
