Dwaynamics is a community interest company (CIC) which aims to deliver powerful boxing and fitness workshops alongside bespoke training for employment, social development and entrepreneurship skills. These two specialist areas are the key aspects of the company, which means that we are dedicated to helping improve the lives of others in all three vital areas mentally, socially and physically.
The Vision of Dwaynamics was founded by the Late Dwayne Simpson who took up the challenge to address the lack of facilities for young people in Angell Town Estate enabling them to engage positively through his boxing and fitness project which brought a great positive impact on the users health and well being.
Dwaynamics was inspired by the passing of the beloved and popular Dwayne Simpson and the unity and strength that was shown by the solid community of Angell Town after this tragedy. The underprivileged area of Angell Town has often been hindered by assaults, deaths as a result of knife and gun crime, gang warfare and robbery. Therefore Dwaynamics was set up to help support and empower people living within the community. Dwaynamics has a strong point of differentiation in this area because it does not focus solely on the negative aspects of living in such an area but instead embraces this and focuses on empowering all positively.
Minister Lorraine Jones the mother of the late DS & Mr Richard Davis re-started the Boxing / Fitness project and registered as a CIC they managed to re-engage with the youth, who Minister Lorraine works closely with on a daily basis in the Lambeth community. In May 2015 The Lambeth Borough Commander Richard Wood Provided a larger temporary space for Dwaynamics which is the Arch 282 Belinda Road SW9 7TD and a team of Senior Officers to help facilitate the boxing sessions under the supervision of our head Coach Mr Richard Davis.
