Tower Hamlets Communities Driving Change

 

We are a lead partner in the Tower Hamlets Council flagship ‘Communities Driving Change’ programme.

This is a health programme working with local people in Tower Hamlets to help them develop ideas to feel healthier and happier. We are one of four organisations leading the approach across the borough, the others are – Bromley By Bow Centre, Poplar and Limehouse Health and Wellbeing Network and MyTime Active.  Our programme is supporting local people to turn their ideas into reality by providing training, access to funding and connecting with others to share ideas and skills.

The programme runs for three years and involves multiple neighbourhoods, their residents and local organisations.

The programme is supported by experts from the University of East London (UEL), who have developed a tried and tested model over the past 10 years.

Communities Driving Change is a priority of Tower Hamlets Council’s Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2017- 2020 tackling significant health inequalities.
