​The Community Builders programme will:
  • support you to get involved in your community
  • help to turn your great idea to improve your community into reality
  • provide a way to use your skills and knowledge in your community.
Newham is committed to supporting its residents to come together to form strong, cohesive and resilient communities. Across the borough eight Community Neighbourhood teams help deliver this commitment by bringing people together in community centres, libraries and other public spaces to take part in activities, introducing neighbour to neighbour and linking people through new experiences.
 
Community Neighbourhoods can provide help and advice, connecting people, and helping to identify resources such as space, expertise, courses and training such as first aid and funding opportunities.
 
Do you have an idea to develop your community, support your neighbours, improve the environment, help children play and connect people? This can be a reality with support from Community Neighbourhoods.
 

What will you do to help build your community?

You too can get involved to help create vibrant and sustainable communities, with a dynamic mix of environments, personalities, cultures and interests.
