What to expect
The current situation facing the borough is a serious one, which will no doubt have far-reaching consequences for all of us. But even as we battle the coronavirus crisis we believe that the stubborn issues of poverty and inequality can be solved if we work together.
Though this fund may seem modest in light of the challenge ahead of us, it has been designed by local people to respond to the situation they are seeing in their own communities. By coming together, this group has helped shape this fund and set the foundations of Barking and Dagenham Giving, and its mission to unite the ideas, energy and funds around common causes that will make Barking and Dagenham a stronger place of us all.
We are now looking to set up a panel of people to make decisions on funding applications. If this sounds like something of interest to you follow the link and tell us a bit about yourself!
