Helping people to help themselves where they are


Since 2001, AACO has been working with XLP; a charity working with young people in over 30 schools and communities across Southwark, Lewisham, Greenwich, Bexley, Tower Hamlets and Newham. Whilst much of the work is based in the schools, XLP also works on a number of estates using both community facilities and XLP’s own double-decker bus facility that has computer equipment for homework support upstairs, and a youth “chill” space downstairs. Thanks to Patrick Reagan and XLP £21,000 was raised through Spring Harvest for the construction of the Jubilee Senior High School. XLP continues to support AACO in many ways such as developing and managing the Jubilee Senior High School student sponsorship programme and taking mission teams of young people from London to Ghana each year.
