Harold Hill is a council estate in London Borough of Havering. Two thirds of the properties are probably now owned. It has a high rate of crime and is the most disadvantaged area in London Borough of Havering. It is predominately white British. The estate was built as an overflow after the war for people living in the east end of London.
Today in Harold Hill there are families struggling to put food on the table. For people on low incomes, a sudden crisis - redundancy, benefit delay or even an unexpected bill - can mean going hungry. Every day parents skip meals to feed their children and people are forced to choose between paying the rent and eating.
We are an independent charity based in Harold Hill. I live in Harold Hill so I know the area and its problems well. We work with local churches and schools and as we are independent they are more willing to work with us than if we were working under the umbrella of say one church or one school.
