Woodberry Down for Everyone
The Woodberry Down for Everyone project is a three year project, funded by Big Lottery’s Reaching Communities Fund. The aim of the project is to support the local community in enhancing their mental and physical health and wellbeing while also promoting environmentally friendly practices in order to make Woodberry Down a greener neighbourhood. The project tackles poor health, unemployment and social isolation by restoring community networks and building the capacity of community groups to deliver much-needed but poorly resourced services.
The majority of the project’s activities and events take place at the Redmond Community Centre and at other partner organisations in Woodberry Down.
Well London was an exciting programme, funded by the Big Lottery Fund, that built stronger local communities by getting people working together to improve their neighbourhoods, their health and wellbeing. The programme delivered projects in twenty of London’s most deprived communities. Partners include Groundwork London, London Sustainability Exchange, Arts Council England and University of East London.
