The Flavasum Trust

The Flavasum Trust is a small charity that was set up after Tom-Louis Easton was stabbed to death in Islington in 2006. He was working in a sound recording studio for Islington Council, providing after-school support.

Frontline manages the charity, which uses theatre and film to reach and engage  young people to try and persuade them not to carry knives. It works in primary and secondary schools in London and Luton, with funding principally from the Home Office, the London Mayor’s Office and private donations.

Haringey Arts Council and Collage Arts

Frontline provided development advice and support to Haringey Arts Council from 1990, and after it became Collage Arts, until 2006. It helped to secure over £1million of European and other public funds for a wide range of capital and revenue projects that supported access to training and employment in the creative industries in North London.

The projects included the Haringey Community Arts Programme, which provided training and work experience for unemployed young people, the creation of a sound recording studio and a digital arts centre where specialised training could be offered, both in Tottenham, and London’s first online centre for the cultural industries in Wood Green, where support for local creative businesses was available.
