About Us

Our Community Cares (OCC) has been running since 2013, serving people of all faiths and cultures living in and around the Canning Town area. We provide counselling for vulnerable and isolated people experiencing hardship, loneliness and abuse. We also provide advice and community welfare programmes as well as activities to engage and uplift both the young and the old.

We run a twice weekly foodbank in Canning Town and Plaistow as well as providing food support throughout the school holidays, when funding allows.

Additionally we provide Coffee mornings, Creche facilities, educational courses, street and park parties and healthy cooking courses.
