CCHA worked in conjunction with Elevating Success to once again provide a Summer of activities. The School’s out holiday programme ran over a course of 4 weeks, proving to be the longest run to date.With a combined attendance of 72 young people from Croydon and surrounding areas being involved, the ages ranged from 7 to 15 years. Together we hosted active events such as laser quest and Olympic Park trips and more educational trips such as visits to the Natural History Museum and Kew Gardens.

Summer 2017

Elevating Success UK, now in its tenth year, continues to offer unique summer holiday programmes and this year has had the opportunity to work in partnership with Metropolitan Housing Trust, London and Quadrant, CCHA, North London Muslim Housing Association and our longest standing partner Youth First (formally Lewisham Youth Services). Over the course of six weeks we delivered both offsite and onsite activities across five locations, allowing young people to enjoy a range of experiences and adventures that they may not otherwise have been able to access.

Overall we engaged 325 young people aged 7 to 15, making 2017 exceptional and our best attended  summer of activities in our company’s history to date.

With a dedicated team of 35 youth workers, supported by 14 volunteers from local communities, our experienced team oversaw each day’s activities and provided a safe and welcoming environment in which the young people could enjoy their holiday. To echo the sentiments of Murat, aged 5 from north london, “This has been the best summer of my life.”

Take a look at our favourite pictures of summer 2017.

lewngton holiday

Elevating Success UK has successfully run the Lewington Holiday Programme where many young individuals have truly enjoyed spending their time with our very own Managing Director, Andrew Brown. Andrew helped run the half term programme where the kids enjoy many different activities in the Lewington Centre such as arts and crafts, music,dance etc. etc. At one point, 38 kids was entered into the half term spring  programme where Andrew treated them to cinema and bowling.


Elevating Success UK was nominated for the ‘Community Organisation Award’ with the National Diversity Awards. We received over 150 votes from all of our supporters and this aided us in achieving a place on the shortlist for the final event. The event took place in Liverpool at the Anglican Cathedral on Friday the 16th September 2016. Unfortunately, Elevating Success UK did not win, with the prestigious award going to the AIM Academy. Nevertheless, it was an amazing experience for Andrew Brown and his team to be shortlisted for the award and we are very grateful for your continued support and vow to keep working hard going forward.

On Saturday 4th June 2016, we held our first family fun day, where we attracted over 120 people. This event allowed us to introduce ourselves to the local community, letting them know what services we offer and how they can reach us.
The event consisted of information stalls allowing people to; sign-up to apprenticeship programmes and employment support; find out more about family support and training programmes, all while enjoying a BBQ and listening to music. We also had face painting, a raffle, a bouncy castle and more. Why not look at the picture and see how well the day went?  Click Here
