Entrepreneurs helping communities through innovation

story our people how we can help Contact

Our story starts nearly 30 years ago, when Andrew, as a young stipendiary Minister, arrived to take responsibility for a large Victorian Church in the East End of London. He had few members and £400 in the bank. The church was surrounded by several dysfunctional housing estates and the local residents received 95% of their income from state sources. Andrew noticed that a lot of resources were being invested into management committees that were fond of producing reports. At ground level, he noticed little significant change for the people most in need.

Today, the Bromley-by-Bow Centre is internationally known and has been used frequently by government as a national exemplar for integrated health care and a template for the successful regeneration of communities. The Centre is, today, a complex organisation, running a huge range of projects across different sites, both independently and in partnership with others. It works with 2,000 people each week, and its services are tailored to the needs of the whole community: families, young people, vulnerable adults and elders. It houses the first integrated health centre, children’s nursery, art studios, business and enterprise hub, café, communiversity and a range of other integrated services.
