Situation

Over 50% of children in Tower Hamlets are living in poverty, the highest of any London borough. The strain this causes intensifies the challenges young people face, undermines relationships, and destabilises families and communities. Together, these challenges can limit individuals’ opportunities for success and their ability to make a positive contribution to their community.

Solution

Our work helps young people make the most of their future. We partner with local schools and organisations to help identify young people that might benefit from a programme of activities that helps improve their social and personal wellbeing. The projects we run help build confidence and aspiration, support academic attainment, and enable young people to make a difference to the place they live in.
