We’re excited to share the success of our Annual Social Justice Picnic, held on 30 August at Park Hill Park, Croydon. The event brought together community leaders, activists, and supporters to celebrate the power of community and collaboration in driving positive change.
The picnic was more than just a gathering—it was a testament to our commitment to fostering a role within the community that goes beyond legal assistance. Through engaging discussions and insights, we facilitated conversations around housing, systematic disrepair, volunteering and court watch, the growing needs of asylum seekers due to new government initiatives, as well as the cost of living crisis.
Our guest speakers added depth to the discussions. Emma, representing the South Norwood Community Kitchen, emphasised the importance of grassroots work in meeting the evolving needs of our communities. Josh from Unite for a Workers’ Economy and Fionnuala from CourtWatch London shared their perspectives on organising, social advocacy, and the transformative role of community strength.
Through this event, we aimed to cultivate a platform for community-driven initiatives. We hope to address important questions collectively and build a caring community that stands for the values we hold: justice and equity.
We extend our gratitude to everyone who contributed to the success of the event—organisers, speakers, and attendees alike. Let’s carry forward this momentum and collaboration as we continue to contribute to positive transformation for our local communities.
