Putting the Joy into Oak Tree House

Find out more about how our Employment and Financial Inclusion team supported Joy to set up her own catering business to start her own catering business and take over the catering at Oak Tree House.

Dee Park café – a space for the community

Dee Park café has been open since October 2020 and is just what the community needed during a pandemic. We had a chat with café manager, Tina, to find out how the new Dee Park café came to life.

Our summer cycling programme and you

For our summer programme we teamed up with London Bike Hub and Sustrans to offer a free cycling programme in our neighbourhoods and cycling activity packs throughout the summer.

Our summer programme: a virtual success

Due to Covid-19, our Communities team delivered a packed calendar of online events for families and young people. There were lots of virtual activities for our younger customers such as boxing, drama and music clubs.

What’s happening with the wellbeing team

Our wellbeing team has been working hard since lockdown began in March 2020, contacting customers who they think may need a little extra support.

We caught up with Community Investment Coordinator – Tina Nash, on the wellbeing project, to find out more.
