local services what we offer
Community Links has over 30 years experience of working with the community of Newham. Our aim is to deliver excellent support services to children, young people, adults and families to make them easy to access and local to you. We are also encouraging encouraging neighbours to get to know each other, support each other and work towards improving their communities through our Linking Neighbours programme.
Our network of Community Hubs around Newham are for everyone who lives nearby - children, families, young people, older people. We run everything from play schemes to walking clubs, sports sessions to bingo & tea. Find our where your nearest centre is and pop in to find out how you can get involved. Find out more.
We run youth clubs at all our community hubs several evening a week, have sports sessions operating all round the borough through our S-team, provide advice, and help young people find jobs or sort out issues. We also offer some specialist services for young people, including through our school Education Links. Read more.
Activities for adults and families run at all our community hubs - with clubs, classes, coffee mornings, advice and support with issues like finding a job. We also run a specialist advice service covering housing, debt or welfare benefits issues, and run a large back-to-work support scheme. Find out more.
