Bonny Downs Voices for Change

could you help support Newham’s recovery from the pandemic?

Voices for Change is a new research project, recently launched by Newham charity Bonny Downs Community Association (BDCA). It is designed to capture experiences of the pandemic from people who live and work in Newham and gives people an opportunity to discuss their hopes and priorities for the future. This will help BDCA shape its future services for the community in response and, in return for your participation, BDCA will be very happy to share a summary report of the research findings so we can all benefit from the research and build a brighter Newham together.

The project will run until March and funding has been provided by The National Lottery Community Fund. You can read more about the project here.
