The AHOY Centre in Deptford provides opportunities for disadvantaged and at-risk youths.  All activities and programmes are focused on teaching transferable and employable life skills whilst offering opportunities for disabled people to participate on an equal level.  Bringing together people from many walks of life, working as a community to help others, build life skills, self-confidence and team building.  

 

The Good Grief Project, which began as a project to make a documentary film about the grief of bereaved parents and the continuing bonds they have with their dead child, has now become a charity.  Their mission is to support families grieving after the untimely death of a loved one, particularly the death of a child and to promote an understanding of what it means to grieve.



Meanwhile the film now named 'A Love That Never Dies' has been on a UK-wide tour.
