Citizens' Assemblies

Community assemblies

Join us at your local Community Assembly to identify and discuss how best to address challenges in your area. The assemblies give you and your neighbours direct influence to create a shared vision for the place where you live, work or learn and to help shape its development and growth. This will be your chance to set priorities, establish community projects for your neighbourhood, influence decision making, and have a greater say in how local funding is spent.

How they work 

The borough of Newham has eight Community Neighbourhoods and each neighbourhood has been allocated £100,000 funding to spend on improving the area. Each of the Community Neighbourhoods covers two or three local wards. The assemblies will deal with making improvements to that whole area rather than one particular street or ward. Anyone who lives, works or learns in the Community Neighbourhood can take part. You can find out more about the projects chosen to receive funding in this cycle of assemblies by visiting the Newham Cocreate Platform.

You can watch our story so far on YouTube

How to get involved

Our Community Assemblies are back with another £100,000 available to improve your neighbourhood. Join us at your local assembly to share your ideas for how to tackle local priorities and make your neighbourhood a better place to live. You can also find out how to apply for funding to bring your ideas to life.
