If you live in Barking & Dagenham we want to work
with you to make it a stronger place for us all

We value local knowledge, experience, and insight of our residents. Your experience of Barking & Dagenham is crucial to supporting what is important to you and solving any issues that you see around you.

We are looking to expand our board of trustees in 2021, which will give residents the opportunity to take on a position of responsibility. This role will come with support and training, offering a great way to develop yourself while giving back to the community.

The most important thing you can give to us are your thoughts and we’ll do everything we can to enable you to share them with us. If you have ideas about how we should do this, please let us know.
