St. Hilda's

St Hilda’s East Community Centre is a vibrant multi-purpose community organisation,
providing a wide range of services and opportunities for local people of all ages - from
pre-school activities, youth projects, support for older people, carers’ respite and
domiciliary care, to free Legal Advice, volunteering and ‘on the job’ training placements.
St Hilda’s works across two sites, our community centre in Bethnal Green and a
second site, Sonali Gardens, about two miles away in Shadwell.

Founded 1889

  • Mission statement

    St Hilda’s East has been serving the community for over 125 years, having been set
    up as a ‘settlement’ in the East End of London in 1889. Nowadays a locally managed
    charity, we continue to provide support and opportunities for those facing disadvantage
    and social exclusion.
    St Hilda’s East aims to combat the challenges arising from deprivation and social exclusion in the local community
    through a range of high quality social, healthy living, educational, and recreational programmes. In all we do, we aim
    to break down barriers and reduce isolation, enabling access to learning, training and opportunities, empowering
    people to reach their goals.
    At St Hilda’s East we believe that our strength lies in our diversity, helping to meet
    the needs of local people and supporting their aspirations. We also aim to promote
    understanding between all sections of the local community, offering a setting for
    multicultural, interfaith and intergenerational exchange.
