Created by local people for local people.

Barking Riverside Limited have partnered with Thames Life and Social Spider CIC, providing funding to help transform Riverside News into a sustainable resident-led newspaper. The vision is to create a resident editorial board (REB) made up of local people who will lead in the design, production and distribution of this paper. The REB has now been established with local residents; Hafiz Rahman, Kevin Hudson, Sherin Parvin, Venilia Amorim, and Zahra Awani, plus Thames Life Comms Officer Zainab, being trained and supported by Social Spider to produce the quarterly publication. It will continue to share local updates as well as championing resident stories.

Submit contributions for our Summer 2024 Issue (June) from April 2024: We will be inviting local residents and community organisations to contribute to our eleventh issue, which will be published in June. 

Please email us with ideas for articles you would like to write: We will discuss your article idea with you before confirming if it is something we’d like to include.
