The Surjamuki Project (meaning ‘sunflower’ in Bengali) runs weekly sessions at St Hilda’s East Community Centre for young people with disabilities living in the Tower Hamlets area, with minibus transport enabling regular involvement. The core values and principles of Every Child Matters and Hear by Right are central to its activities.

The project aims to promote confidence, positive learning and independence of members through its provision, including holiday programmes and residential trips. A state of the art Sensory Room at St Hilda’s provides a stimulating environment for Surjamuki members and other young people in Tower Hamlets to explore. Recent activities include playing boccia (a paralympic sport), a MasterChef competition and joining a Tower Hamlets Youth Opportunities Fund grants panel, where Surjamuki members were given the empowered responsibility of helping to make decisions on awards to projects across the borough.
