Generating change and improving lives in east London.

We support people in coming together, overcoming barriers, building purpose and making the most of the place they live in. From our base in east London we apply the learning from our local work to influence and achieve positive change.

Our Vision: ‘Ready for Everything Communities’

Enabling groups of people who support each other to overcome problems, prevent them from occurring again and help each other to thrive and achieve their goals.

Starting in Canning Town, we are building a Ready for Everything approach that can be replicated and expanded elsewhere.

This year we joined the Catch22 Group in an innovative partnership that gives us the strength, scale and depth to be able to relaunch our mission and strategy.






Evening Legal Advice Sessions run every Wednesday from 4pm on a first come, first served basis at 105 Barking Road, Canning Town.

Form Filling Services are held on Tuesday Mornings from 8.30am at 105 Barking Road, Canning Town
