August – Top 200 Civil servants visit Andrew’s Projects

Posted at 12:55pm 21st September, 2010

Over the summer, Andrew hosted a visit from the “Top 200” civil servants to see the amazing developments at the St Paul’s Way Transformational Project and the Bromley-by-Bow Centre.

The aim of the Top 200 “Deprived Neighbourhoods – Big Society project” is to join up activities across public services and enable the Big Society to flourish.

We were encouraged to work with the Top 200 team because of their pledge to work with communities to understand how Government needs to respond to and meet remaining challenges and to make the most of opportunities to deliver more integrated public services in the most deprived neighbourhoods.
