In Tower Hamlets, today, over half of all children will wake up in poverty. Many families don’t know where to turn and job opportunities for young people can be hard to access.  Possibilities are on the door step – literally. The affluence of Canary Wharf sits cheek-by-jowl with Tower Hamlets, where City Gateway is based. Yet without help unlocking that potential, few will benefit.

This is where they step in, seeing potential and working among young people, women and families in some of London’s communities most impacted by social and economic inequality.
