Our mission is to unite the community of Tower Hamlets and improve the quality of life for the residents through involvement with the local community.

 

Our centre is designed to bring the local community together to make a real difference; we give the residents of Tower Hamlets the opportunity to come together and stand up for the issues that affect them and the community. Members of the community can become involved in campaigning around issues that affect their lives, such as housing, public services and benefits. . If there isn’t an action group already existing for a particular issue you want to address, you can even set your own one up with our help.Many of the activities at the centre are organised by volunteers. It is easy to join in and anyone can become a volunteer! We are committed to supporting new ideas that provide learning opportunities which strengthen the community.
