The Limehouse Project

The Limehouse Project works to empower marginalised, financially excluded and socially isolated members of local communities living in and across the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.

Founded 1984

  • Mission statement

    The Limehouse Project (LHP) has worked to respond to the needs of minority communities throughout the London Borough of Tower Hamlets for over 25 years. Our aim is to alleviate the difficulties and help realise the aspirations of the most disadvantaged members of local communities, with an especial focus on women, all peoples of ethnic minority origin and those for whom English is not a first language. Our growing successes and achievements are dependent upon our ability to provide:

    - Information, advice and advocacy support in our clients’ own languages;

    - Education, training and opportunities for supported volunteering geared towards helping women gain the confidence and skills they need to play a full role in their social and economic environments; and

    - A range of educational and recreational activities / experiences for women and their families, children, older people and others geared towards enhancing their life experiences but which would otherwise be beyond their reach.

    Mission Statement
    We seek to empower marginalised, financially excluded and socially isolated peoples by delivering programmes which will help them overcome the socio-economic barriers to self-empowerment, physical and mental well-being and the economically stable lives. We understand that by enabling and supporting an individual, we have the potential to strengthen a family from within, thereby creating stronger communities and a collectively peaceful society.

  • Aims

    The Limehouse Project aims to:

    • To strengthen families and thereby the wider community through providing each individual with services tailored to meet their needs .
    • To provide the knowledge, guidance and tools to empower marginalised peoples to act for themselves for the betterment of their lives and those of their families.
    • To identify and deliver services based upon the needs of those communities which are often neglected by mainstream organisations or feel unable to access the help to which they have a right
