Our recent highlights:

Since its founding in 2017 we have:

  • Won over £2m worth of improvements to TFL bus routes to and from local schools, to ensure young people can travel safer
  • Ensured Rose Lane, Marksgate was resurfaced for residents
  • Campaigned for youth and street safety
  • Fought for more jobs that pay a Real Living Wage across the borough

Our organisation co-chaired our recent Accountability Assembly in April and won commitments from East Area Superintendent Butterfield to work with us on tackling youth safety, an agreement to meet twice a year from the Council Leader and a commitment to support us in getting a Real Living Wage for Care Workers through their role in the new Integrated Care Systems.
