Our Objectives

Our vision is that New Cross Gate should be a place where our local community are able to live happy, healthy, stable and fulfilled lives.

Based in an urban, inner-city neighbourhood that experiences high levels of deprivation, we aim to support our local community to learn new skills, improve their employment prospects, improve their health and well-being, feel safe and supported, develop their self-confidence and social networks and access relevant services according to their needs. We aim to enable all of our community to achieve their goals. Read more about our vision, mission and values..
