Trinity Community Centre

Trinity Community Centre is the hub for intergenerational dialogue that truly reflects the vibrancy of Newham, supporting its own projects and those wishing to make a difference in the community.

Founded 1972

  • Mission statement

    Trinity has 3 broad areas of delivery:

    Trinity projects, established as a response to specific local issues (eg Adult Education Programme, a project to support young refugees/asylum seekers who have arrived in the UK without their families, a Day Care Nursery run as a social enterprise, support group and activities for elders and adults with learning disabilities and a support group for vulnerable Asian women).

    Independent Groups, supporting local people to set up their own activities and interests, providing opportunities for people to come together (eg mother tongue classes, dance, music, art, sport, social activities and advice and support).

    Partnerships with larger Third Sector agencies and the statutory sector, including services based at Trinity to improve access, particularly by hard to reach groups (eg NHS group to support adults with mild to moderate mental health issues, NHS group to support recovery of stroke victims, family mediation service, Local Councillors’ and Residents’ Forum meetings).

    Trinity is well respected as a Centre that supports and encourages intergenerational activities. It is not uncommon for us to work with and support 3 generations of the same family simultaneously. We believe in preventative action where possible; we are independent and can therefore take a flexible approach, acting quickly when necessary so that difficulties do not become major obstacles.

    We have also won awards for services to the community.
