What we'll deliver:

  • Buy furniture, fittings and equipment for the centre
  • Refurbish the small community building we have obtained from the local council.
  • Set up an ICT suite for the benefit of local people

Why it's a great idea:

We will add value by increasing essential and affordable community facilities by establishing the " Empower-Community Hub". We will help those who are on low income. Help those over 50 , often overlooked and need specialist services. We want to promote self-help, volunteering and inspire the local community through our projects. We want to promote specialist projects for Women, Refugees and Ethnic Minorities. We want to give voice to those socially excluded and marginalised. We want to create opportunities for all sections of the community and help to ease the pressure on local public services. We want to create community cohesion by work with different sections of the super-diverse population in East London. We want to promote partnership working between different agencies. We want to help with implementing findings of the "Redbridge Fairness Commission", "London Poverty Profile" and the "GLA" and create opportunities for those facing disadvantage, poverty and inequality.

Steps to get it done:

Enhance self-help, community empowerment and community cohesion
