Newham Support Services

Get help, support and stay connected with our Newham support services.

If you are a Newham resident aged 18+ and need some support with accessing shopping or take part in a variety of in-person/virtual activity sessions, then we can match you with a volunteer for a schedule of weekly support sessions.

We will match you to a trained and vetted volunteer, who will be able to assist you with shopping trips, collection of food or attending activities, whether in-person or via virtually assisted support.
