Who we are
About Community Links
We are an innovative east London charity, running a wide range of community projects for over 11,500 people every year. Based in Newham, we have nearly 40 years experience working with local people to support children, young people, adults and families.
Through our national work, we share lessons with government and community groups across the country to achieve social change.
Since 1977 we have been changing lives. Working in the heart of east London, we are faced with chronic poverty – unemployment, low educational attainment, poor health outcomes and household deprivation.
We also have huge opportunities – enterprising people, strong neighbourhoods and local and national investment. Community Links is here to match them up.
Helping young people gain skills, getting adults into work, providing spaces for families to thrive, developing businesses for the future and, every time,
doing this together with the people who need support, the funders who want to make a difference and the policy-makers with influence.
