A celebratory artwork has been created to mark the achievements of Communities Driving Change, a project that has positively influenced our local community in a number of successful ways. The project approach highlights the Centre’s role as a catalyst to help grow local community capacity.
The mural was created by artist, Joy Girvin, along with members of the community, called ‘Spaces of Hope’. It remains on display at the Centre, for anyone to drop in and view.
Communities Driving Change (CDC) was established to give local residents and organisations opportunities to work together to understand what sorts of activities people wanted to be involved in that would have a positive impact on their health and wellbeing.
Local Area Coordinators have been working hard to bring people together to gather ideas, make plans and help to implement them in ways that the communities themselves can be directly involved in bringing the ideas to life.
CDC has shown the power of bringing people together to listen to each other and find out what our community needs. The project has seen many community groups emerge, based on what local residents have told us.
We couldn’t be prouder of our community who have been working to create a wonderful legacy of community groups that local people can continue to enjoy for years to come.
Activities continue to happen and anyone in Tower Hamlets is welcome to join in. We have walking groups, coffee afternoons, arts and crafts sessions, cookery, clubs for kids, exercise for adults, mental health support and everything in between.

A huge thank you to all of the hard work put in by the team at the Bromley by Bow Centre, and our remarkable group of volunteers and participants.
