Roots and Shoots provides vocational training for young people from the inner city, mainly from the London boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark.

Follow us on:


We aim to give them the skills and self-confidence that will equip them for work.The charity was set up in 1982 by Linda Phillips, who is still the Director, to help young people from Lambeth and Southwark prepare for the world of work. Up to thirty 16-25 year olds who have had difficulty coping in the traditional educational system spend a year learning with us.

Alongside this training we involve local schools and the wider community by establishing our site as an important green space for urban biodiversity.

For descriptions of our site, its planting and wildlife, see the "Environmental Education" pages of the website
