Geographical remit: 


Newham New Deal Partnership was established in 2004, and has its roots in community development and regeneration.

We work locally and strategically across Newham and neighbouring Boroughs. Our vision is of proactive and creative communities without barriers where everyone is able to fulfil their potential and live in dignity.

Our aim is to be an agent of community cohesion and transformation through delivering volunteer and training opportunities, services to vulnerable and hard to reach groups, place making and the arts projects which inspire communities, enrich society and stimulate people to fulfil their potential.

Our Board of Trustees comprise people with local knowledge and understanding of local communities together with management and business skills.


Our Good Neighbours services provide support to older people, people with dementia, and those with disabilities, delivered by over 20 trained volunteers. We are accredited by the Befriending and Mentoring Foundation. The aim of the befriending service is to reduce isolation and increase social contact, self-confidence and choice for elderly residents with dementia in the Newham community. In addition, the service offers carers respite and on-going befriending support through regular home visits, and currently some casework support for carers.

We also support digital inclusion by providing opportunities for older people and others to learn to use tablet devices in a social setting at a number of community venues across Newham.

Our current Arts project is an Almasi League programme, supported by Arts Council England, which aims to develop both writing talent in BAME communities, and the audience for BAME writing.

By exploring and discovering what’s on our doorstep, and rediscovering the past, we can gain a new appreciation of our localities by connecting people and place. We have just won funding for an exciting two-year heritage project, Discovering Stratford Village 1890s - 1990s, Working Lives Working Communities, which aims to identify the trades and working lives through archival research and oral history collection, of the residents of a small area of modest Victorian domestic housing through the ages.
