East London Community Programme

Do you want to make a difference in your community?

Do you have untapped ideas or projects that you want to develop that could contribute?

Do you want to connect and join with like-minded people in making a difference?

Grit is dedicated to creating belonging with young people and communities. We need your input to create a new vision for young people in East London.

Building on the success of our recent pan-London Youth Congress Community Transformation Programme, delivered in partnership with Prevista Ltd, we are proposing a radical five-year programme for the communities of East London to create belonging, aspiration and safety, at a time of increasing fragmentation.

To kick-start this process we want to build a consortium of public, private and voluntary sector organisations/services to co-design and deliver the project with us. We have a unique transformational training methodology to offer but we need the energy and input of the community, if we are to fulfil on our ambition to engage over 1000 aspirational adults to support 500 young people in transforming their lives.


Do you want to know more about our ideas and how you can get involved?

Come along to one of our information evenings to find out more about our ideas, share your ideas with us: hear from our current partners, past volunteers and young people. Sessions will take place at NEWTEC, 1 Mark Street, Stratford E15 4GY from 6-7.30pm on the dates below:

Wednesday 7th November and Tuesday 13th November


Get involved! Come along to support us in the development of this exciting programme that has a real chance of transforming communities in East London.
