“It is never too late to achieve something before you become ‘the late’ – at least start the process.”
How you start your year can determine how you finish the year. Laying the right foundation for the year will bring the right result. At the beginning of the year, I did a survey and asked a few people, which they would prefer “new year resolutions or goals?” 100% of the people surveyed chose goals. I […]
I am confident. I am beautiful. I am strong. Body image is the perception that a person has of their physical self and the thoughts and feelings that result from that perception. These feelings can be positive, negative or both, and are influenced by individual and environmental factors. I remember a few years ago, I […]
COVID 19 and Men’s Mental Health This year has been a very challenging year for everyone but particularly for men. We have some interesting programs and events mapped out this week to help men navigating these challenging times.
John Hugh Jennings was a man with a vison. He envisioned a school where complete beginners could learn painting with absolutely no background or previous training. For years he looked for an avenue that could accommodate his vision. In partnership with LADC we made his vison happen. On Saturday the 27th of July 2013, he […]
The coding class was very inspirational. It made me to code more than I used to. It was my first time using Microsoft teams and code.org . Even though I used to code in the past, this coding class made me understand what coding is really about. I learnt that a computer is any device […]
“Our respect for food can go a long way to shape our views and perspectives in life”. In 2015, I came across the Love Food Hate Waste. At the time, I had reached a low point in life where I lost my job. Fola Olaoye, the LADC Co-ordinator at the time, had encouraged me into […]
UPDATE 2020 We have some good news about one of our boys in the GCI academy: Tomiwa Kolawole Who was our football captain last session, Has been selected onto the U17 Nigerian team! CONGRATULATIONS!!! Fola Olaoye
I joined the Love Assembly Art School in 2015. When I joined, I had only a passion for fine art and some secondary school experience painting in water colours and poster paints. Our wonderful teacher John Jennings (may his soul rest in peace) found out about my passion and assured me that this was all […]
I love music. The idea of playing the strings (guitar) sprang from when I was a teenager. I read a lot of Bible stories and this led to my resolution of employing the strings in my worship. When I read books or watched someone playing the Spanish guitar, I saw the relationship between love and […]
A big, huge congratulations to all the graduating students of our Money and Talent Course 2018! It was an amazing and emotional time.

The food, the games, people having fun… a beautiful combination of having a […]
What our service users are saying
Parents, Baby’s and Toddlers
Jumoke & I started the Parent, Baby & Toddler group as we were both on maternity leave and wanted a space to hang out with other parents and let our babies play & explore their environment; we also wanted to do something that we could invite the local community to.
It was a lovely experience setting this up and we had some other mums on maternity leave join us which was nice. We had a lot of sensory toys, nursery rhymes and made toast & tea for those who came. We also had some of the local people join in, it was lovely to meet them.
Made me think
I found the SD game interesting because it was different and not like any other game. This made me think out of the box while participating in the game.
Lost weight while having fun
During the pandemic as a football lover I thought the game I love so much was taken away from me but social distancing SD game came through for me. I burnt lots of Calories while having fun.
The risk of injuries are also minimised.
It was also a game that got me to use my brain a lot more while playing and encouraged team work while social distancing.
I will recommend this game to be developed and improved on as this is becoming our new normal.
A fun game
It’s a fun game that teaches you how to keep distance measures while playing with friends or family. It improves your team work skills and promotes your physical strength. I would recommend it to people who want to play/have fun and isolate at the same time.
SD20 is fascinating
I find the social distancing football game very fascinating. I was privileged to participate in the physical field trial and now with the introduction of the gaming app made it even better. The game app is user friendly and quite straight forward to play. Nice concept and easy to install on mobile phones
My time with LADC
It was great volunteering in LADC. I joined LADC in 2014 as a volunteer till sometime in 2018. I was opportune to work in ad hoc groups but mainly within the accounts department. LADC for me was like an escape route from school, part-time work etc. Even though I took part in some responsibilities, because of the peaceful and friendly environment not forgetting the Administrator I was reporting to, it didn’t seem like work.
My time in LADC aided my growth. Just to point to a few things: I learnt time management, organization, work ethic. It built my confidence and interpersonal skills too. Again, some things I did in LADC helped my knowledge because it brought to reality things I had learnt in theory.
My time here in the minutes and hours were worth it.
I learnt the strings
From the very first day, the guitar became my buddy. My tutor helped me set it up then she and I scheduled regular classes. There was something unique about her style of teaching. She was patient and made learning fun and easy for me. Her regular feedback was what made me improve and get better.
I really appreciate my tutor and would recommend her to anyone who is a beginner or wants to improve on their skills.
It is a great opportunity; don’t miss it!
I would encourage you to enrol at the LADC Art School. It will be a very valuable experience.
You will learn the classic skill of oil painting, as well as other skills of observation, imagination, planning, control which you can apply anywhere.
Another bonus is you’ll be acquiring training which people pay thousands of pounds for at approximately no cost at all.
I understand what coding is really about
The coding class was very inspirational. It made me to code more than I used to. We were able to play games that made coding easier and fun.
The coding class was awesome and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to learn & understand coding. I am really looking forward to the next coding class.
Football Academy has kept me fit. I have observed the character of the players improve because of what is being taught so I always look forward to the comradeship between the boys.
