Rockwell’s Charity Night Walk: Supporting Keeping Families Together

We believe in making a real difference in our communities, and we were thrilled to complete a Night Walk across London to raise funds for this important charity to Battersea.

This week, some of the Rockwell team undertook a charity Night Walk across London to each of our developments to raise funds for Keeping Families Together, an important charity in Battersea supporting local families.

Starting at our development, Vetro, near Canary Wharf, our Night Walk route took us through East London, south of the river onto Battersea and then Hurlingham Waterfront, before heading to our office on St. James’s Square. Across 6 hours, we walked over 30 kilometres – no mean feat on a chilly November evening – and to date have raised over £1,350 for Keeping Families Together from our supporters.

Keeping Families Together are the unsung heroes of Wandsworth, providing much-needed help to families in the borough’s social services system. When it comes to child protection and child in need meetings, they’re the ones who stand by the side of families, and they work closely with social services, schools, parents, and other professionals to empower families and minimise the risk of young people becoming isolated in society.

What’s special about Keeping Families Together is their early intervention approach – the sooner they get involved, the better chance they have to support families. They support young people in gang exit, by providing alternate pathways, and parents, by providing support in understanding assessments and navigating the family court system. The charity’s work doesn’t stop there, and they also support young people and parents struggling with mental health issues.

It is a holistic approach that truly changes and saves lives, and we were thrilled to complete a Night Walk across London to raise funds for this important charity to Battersea.

At Rockwell, we understand the human impact of every space we create. Our mission is to bring positive change, helping shape a brighter future as we build communities. Proudly supporting partner charities, such as Keeping Families Together, we’re committed to creating opportunities that enrich lives. We will be matching every pound donated by our supporters once our fundraising concludes on 1st December.
