We are a group of local residents in Shadwell representing a number of local institutions (churches, mosques, community groups). 

This website exists to coordinate local efforts to support our community, and to identify gaps in provision – however big or small. We also want this to be a place that individuals can be connected up with others at this most challenging of times.
