Our Community Cares
Supporting Women and their families suffering from isolation
We promote community cohesion and unity through various events that we showcase, for example , foodbank, Coffee morning, children event and many more.
Community Arts and Crafts project
In September last year Our Community Cares received funding from Catch-22’s Culture Within Newham Project, and teaming up with Newham Mosaic we have begun delivering an inspirational programme of artistic and cultural activities – with our first being an Art Workshop with Netstorm which took place in December.
Along with Newham Mosaic, OCC will be delivering more art and music workshops designed to develop existing skills within our community and awaken dormant ones.
The wider aims of this project are to bring our community together to provide support and respite from challenging times and circumstances and to help build individual confidence to empower participants to improve their lives.

Visit our food bank and coffee morning.
Drop in and let us help you with the weekly shop. Also our Friday coffee mornings are a great way to meet neighbours and beat the boredom.
Whatever you can donate from pennies to pounds towards the cost of hiring the building is much appreciated.
See you there!
A BIG THANK YOU
We’d like to say a big thank you to the National Lottery community fund for providing us with the money to keep OCC going and allowing us to care more for our community. The trip to Southend, the Science Museum and the craft activity would not have been possible without their funding. Also, thanks to the community fund we now have a small office space on Freemasons Road for us to organise our work in, for a while.
