Weavers Community Forum (WCF) is a grass root led charity organisation based in the Weavers ward of London Borough of Tower Hamlets.
The Forum was set up in 2010 to tackle poverty, deprivation and the isolation being experienced by a marginalised part of the community. The Forum has long standing reputation within the community in terms of service provision – addressing the social, cultural, welfare and economic needs of the Community in Weavers and beyond. The Forum actively promotes equal opportunities for all.
WCF constantly empowers local residents by providing and seeking ways to enhance and advance their skills, training, knowledge, and work experience.
Our staff and volunteers have developed projects that would improve health and wellbeing as well as employability skills of local people and wider stakeholders. We have focused on reorganising our projects and services, so they remain effective despite austerity pressures.
Our priority is to work with some of the most disadvantaged youth through our Youth and Employment project, making a difference to their quality of life. I urge our partners, friends, and funders to engage with us so we can work collaboratively and innovatively to help young people.
“To empower the marginalised members of the society in our local community with the skills, knowledge, and attitudes they need to change their lives positively for the better.”
“To provide a comprehensive range of services and activities to enable communities in London Borough of Tower Hamlets and surrounding boroughs to determine and develop thriving places in which to live and work.”
The Forum is committed to a set of values that underpins our strategic and operational activities and the way we deliver our services to our communities and service users.
“Open and accountable, culturally inclusive, integrity and trust, readiness to adapt to changes and make a difference, commitment to equality, community cohesion and empowerment of disadvantaged groups.”
