Information, Advice and Guidance

Community Neighbourhood Link Workers are well connected to local community activities and support services in Newham. The Team can advise and support you in accessing these local activities/services – many are free or subsidised.

This ranges from coffee mornings, walking & exercise clubs, gardening groups, carers support groups, mental health support, end of life care, volunteering, health and nutritional support and so much more.

Support for residents who are lonely and/ or socially isolated
