Our vision

Newham is a borough with a radical vision to build a better and brighter future. We are a diverse and aspirational place. By putting people at the heart of everything we do, we aim to enable all our residents to reach their potential and thrive.

Central to our approach is increasing the wealth of the local community in the broadest sense - what we call Community Wealth Building. We will act as a powerful force for economic and social justice, creating a fairer, more equal and sustainable borough, in which people have a genuine opportunity to reach their potential and take part in community life.

We are changing how we work: genuinely involving, engaging and listening to our community.  We aim to be an open and accessible council. By helping people to reach their potential, we will maximise the community wealth of Newham and its residents.
