Help make Tower Hamlets a great place to live, work and play
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.
