About us
The Bromley by Bow Centre is a pioneering charity that combines an extensive neighbourhood hub with a medical practice and a community research project.

Bromley by Bow Centre

We support people with a wide variety of integrated services based on their individual needs, because we know that health is primarily driven by social factors, not medical ones.

We have strategic partnerships with a wide range of organisations and funders, and together we design and deliver highly effective programmes that transform peoples’ lives.

We have created a new model for healthy, vibrant communities and we share our blueprint nationwide to help others emulate our success.

Step by step, it’s possible.
