We believe that everyone gains when we work together: organisations grow stronger, services become more responsive and people find their power. Our vision is of Newham as a place where people, organisations and services all collaborate to build fairer and stronger communities.
HOW CAN WE HELP?
The Covid 19 pandemic has caused immense hardship for large numbers of people in Newham and there has been a huge and energetic response from all sections of the community. The Council, the voluntary and community sector (VCS), faith groups and neighbourhood Covid19 groups are working together in new and unusual ways to get help and support to residents during this difficult time. One Newham is working closely with the Council and Compost to support VCS organisations. Get in touch or visit our Resources page to find out how we can help.
Since the beginning of April, Compost have been gathering information about how local voluntary, community and faith organisations are responding to the Covid19 pandemic. Their weekly survey provides a real-time picture of the services being delivered across the borough, and what help groups will need in order to continue. Help us help you by answering this survey.
