Where We Work

Our programmes focus on supporting socially marginalised people in a wide range of settings.

We work in local schools, community centres and housing estates in the heart of London’s bustling East End.

Health Projects

By addressing the root causes of poor health, and through working in partnership with local agencies, Seeds for Growth seeks to improve the well-being of East End communities in some of the most disadvantaged boroughs in the UK. Find out more..

Training for Work

Helping people into employment is a key part of our approach to improving the well-being of individuals and communities. We have a depth of local understanding that ensures our back-to-work programmes meet the real needs of the people we support. Find out more..

Social Enterprise

Do you have an idea for a social enterprise? Would you like to know how to set up a flourishing, local co-operative? We are the people to speak to. Our team members have been involved in social enterprise initiatives for over twenty years. Find out more..


Seeds for Growth in London focuses on supporting socially marginalised people to achieve their full potential by addressing the factors – such as unemployment, poor health and  lack of access to training – that can so often hold them back.
