St Hilda's East
St Hilda's East
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.
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.
St Hilda's East aims to:
- Provide the highest standards of service and continually improve performance
- Actively involve users in agreeing priorities and setting standards
- Achieve equality of opportunity and learning from diversity
- Make the best use of resources
- Develop staff to achieve their full potential
