Our Vision is of a strong local community where people love to live, and know and care for their neighbours.

Our Mission is to provide a welcoming, positive, accessible and inclusive space at the heart of Walthamstow, and work with the local community to make things happen.

Our Values are at the heart of everything we do:

  • We’re for everyone: We welcome everyone. We believe that everyone has a role to play and skills to share. We believe in reflecting the balance of abilities and passions in our community.
  • We believe in people: We believe in the unique capacities and passions that individuals bring and work with them to make their ideas happen.
  • We focus on local community: We love our local area and trust the community to shape and know how to develop its potential.
  • We believe in the power of creativity: Imagination and creativity can help people to see things differently, express themselves and inspire others.

It’s the heart of Walthamstow
