Catch Up: Literacy sessions at the Community Trust
Aim of Catch Up To help Community Trust service users improve their reading and spelling skills using the literacy intervention programme, Units of Sound, with the main aim of helping those get back into work, enrol on courses and boost their confidence.
What is Units of Sound? Units of Sound is a structured, online literacy intervention programme that covers reading, spelling and writing skills. Units of Sound encourages independent learning.
Who is Catch Up for? Catch Up is for anyone who is, for whatever reason, behind in their reading, spelling and writing and wishes to improve their skills and confidence in literacy. The sessions will benefit people who, for example:
have missed out on a lot of schooling
are dyslexic/ have hidden learning difficulties
have English as a second language
have generally always struggled with their reading and/ or spelling
What will a typical session look like? A typical 45mins session would cover:
Students need to be able to read and spell three letter words as a minimum.
Students need to attend sessions regularly to see progress. Two missed sessions in a row would result in their place being offered to someone else.

"A visit from Shane always wants to make you grin...when he popped in this week no one could hide their absolute delight!
Not wanting to compromise all those years of training...and training...and fitness ..and training and sheer bloody hard work, Shane is now building his career using all those physical and social skills he learned whilst riding with CK
) and the Peckham BMX Club
. Earning good money, keeping fit and progressing from BMXing to bike rider to "ped" rider to a (very soon to be!) car driver.
What a difference a job can make....but then maybe you have to have known Shane from a kid (check out Home Turf in our About Us - Videos
) to share in our joy!
Special thanks to Shane's family, CK
), Delroy Rankin
from Community Trust Housing (also our main sponsor), and those who supported him when times were tough. First rate work chaps...well done!"

the Hottest Place to be this weekend – Sunday 2nd August 2015 was Brixton Splash....
a small local affair that has grow’d and grow’d (just like Topsy) it was magnificent in its size but also in the massive amount of respect that hovered above the crowd – often mistaken as weed smoke.
Trying to run up the road to Tesco became an assault course and having reached the interior, the alcohol aisle was packed with young people buying up the shop whilst appearing to be half cut already.
The weather was good, the vibe was great and yet again Brixton smashed it... and not the windows of Foxton’s!
We are delighted to be able to offer help to people in the community. The Trust is working seamlessly with Peter Ford in the Training Room on Mondays and Wednesdays, the Trust can help you with your CV, signing on to Universal Job Match and assisting you with Job Search. We can also give your computer skills a lift. Come along and meet Peter from 2pm onwards.
Milan fell into the Community Trust trap by meeting with members of the Trust. A motley collection of “OUTSIDERS”, we all agreed to take part in Milan’s new project, 'Outsiders in London, Are you one, too?' The project has its own website (www.outsidersinlondon.org
) and you are welcome to have a look at the images and read the associated stories - perhaps you’ll recognise someone you know?! A six-week exhibition at The Gallery in the Crypt, St Martin-in-the-Fields, Trafalgar Square, will open on 30 March 2015 (Admission free). This is Milan’s second exhibition of photographic portraits, following the successful 100 Faces of London, also shown at St Martin’s, in 2012, just before the Olympics.
As soon as everything is up to date and completed…we will invite you all to come along…until then take a little peek at the website and see just what has been going on.
