Empower people to make a difference

Queen’s Park Community Organisation is a grassroots organisation and registered charity (1199226) targeting the most deprived areas in Bedford. We have four objectives, Welfare, Capacity Building, Recreation and Relief of Poverty. As a Bedford Charity, we empower local people to make a difference by building bridges between communities, schools and organisations via our 3 current programs:

Advocacy and Outreach Service:

We believe all people should have equal access to the services, funds and opportunities they are entitled to.  Our Intervention officers support individuals to navigate statutory and non-statutory services and to manage a wide range of life issues compounded by discrimination, literacy and language barriers, cultural and religious difference.

Building capacity & increasing community resilience:

Supporting small, inexperienced voluntary groups to set up, become positive influencers for change in their communities and become self-sufficient and sustainable.

Youth program:

QPCO believe that having a youth strategy is core to achieving change in Bedford. This is why we invested in developing a youth program. As part of that work, we are currently running a social action project to empower young people through a range of recreational and educational activities to learn and get involved in their local area and help to build stronger communities by building bridges between them and the different groups in the area.

Powerful words from Busingye Johnston about what commemorating 30 years since the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi means to him.

Remember, Reunite and Renew

Over a million Tutsi were killed in a period of 100 days. Mass graves are still being found in Rwanda today.

This 30th commemoration event of the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi is the first instalment of our new “Back To Our Roots” #b2or project, bringing awareness to the unrepresented genocide. 

In this project, we will bring survivors’ testimonies to local schools to educate the younger generations about this all-too-often forgotten piece of history.

We learn about our history to acknowledge and learn from it so as not to repeat the past.

Remember, Reunite and Renew.
