Tower Hamlets Communities Driving Change (CDC) supports residents to lead the change they want to see for improved health and wellbeing locally.

As part of Tower Hamlets Council’s flagship approach to public health, The Young Foundation are working with residents across the north west of the borough to:

1. Determine what matters most to residents in terms of their collective health and wellbeing
2. Design and deliver community-led projects and initiatives in response
3. Influence existing services and systems to be more responsive to local need

Since October 2017, we have been working alongside hundreds of residents, services and local organisations in Bethnal Green, Shoreditch, Whitechapel, Stepney Green and St Dunstan’s to deliver a range of innovative projects, including:

• Peer-led English
• Women’s social enterprise
• Food security
• Youth-led football
• Community gardening
• Affordable exercise
• Cooking clubs
• Redesigning local spaces
And more!

For more information about the programme or to get involved, please contact Zain Ali for the north west or Jill Pitt for the south west of Tower Hamlets.
