We have been in existence for eight years now – three years as a registered charity and five years as a voluntary organisation – and during this time many people have benefited from our projects and interventions. In 2016 we worked with over 2’000 people of all ages, races, religions, backgrounds and disabilities from five years old through to 60 years old helping them to better their life and make a positive change for their future. We are here to offer the chance of change. Factory East is a support network and a base for training and selfgrowth. We are community people working together with professional experts to assist people to lead a better life. Factory East has seen many Governments change hands and many Mayors change hands and we are still here and still going strong, we have survived these changes and we plan to survive many more. We want to carry on saving, helping, and changing so many people’s lives which we believe we can carry on doing.

  • Facilitate the needs of Factory East.
  • Improve equipment.
  • Pay utility bills to keep the project running.
  • Purchase equipment for the children.
  • Take the children to major boxing events.
  • Improve the facility.
  • General upkeep of Factory East Charity.
