Streets of Growth

Marsh Wall has kept our charity alive

Streets of Growth are a Tower Hamlets based charity set up in 2001 by local residents and professionals. Our aim is to help vulnerable young communities aged 14-24 years move out of poverty, steer clear of harmful activities and engage their full potential in terms of social, economic and educational progression. We also create opportunities for young people and developers to come together and better engage communities in regeneration.

The space at Marsh Wall has enabled Streets of Growth to continue our work with up to 199 young people across Tower Hamlets. It has also enabled us to put our funding direct into the work with young people instead of having to plough lots of money into private rents and landlords.

Being at Marsh Wall has also placed us right in the heart of east London’s Financial District, where we are building working partnerships with Canary Wharf etc.

The spaces at Marsh Wall have enabled us to scale up our projects and given space to create new projects that we couldn’t do in previous limited space.

To conclude, having the space at Marsh Wall has kept our charity alive as there is currently no option on the table for when we have to move.
