Our projects

Seeds for Growth was founded in 2006 by volunteers from Tower Hamlets who were engaged in initiatives aimed at enhancing health and well-being, particularly within the Bangladeshi community. In 2012, Seeds for Growth broadened its scope to include projects within the Criminal Justice Sector.

Our projects are centered on assisting disadvantaged individuals through collaborations with local schools, community centers, and housing estates in the vibrant East End of London. Through our participation in EU-funded projects, we have operated in various countries, including Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, and Spain.

Our previous initiatives have:

  • established food co-ops

  • implemented school fruit tuck shops

  • encouraged convenience stores to offer more fresh food

  • facilitated the integration of unemployed individuals into the workforce

  • revitalized community gardens

We designed and delivered projects to reduce child and adult obesity, increase fitness for all, address the high incidence of poor diet related ill health and, in particular, Type 2 Diabetes and Cardiovascular issues.

Co-operative Development

Seeds for Growth provides advice, support and training for groups of people who would like to launch their own worker co-operative. Co-operatives are registered businesses that can trade in any enterprise sector (retail, food, services, etc) and are led by all the employees. In smaller co-operatives often all the employees are on the management committee, whereas in larger ones there will be elections to sit on the governing board.

With funding from the European Union, Seeds for Growth proudly delivered the following criminal justice programmes in the UK and across Europe:
