Stepney Community Trust


Stepney Community Trust is a community-led charity
that has a long history of community action and
support in the Stepney area.

The Trust aims to meet needs in the Whitechapel
area and in Tower Hamlets in general.
The Trust aimed to address the inequalities
experienced by the local community in accessing
decent housing, welfare advice and education,
especially amongst the Bangladeshi community.

Initially, it set about campaigning to improve
the housing stock, regenerating the area and
providing community facilities, including
leisure facilities for young people.

Working closely with the GLC, the Trust
successfully persuaded the then Department
of the Environment to designate the area as
a Housing Action Area, which led to new
investment in the housing stock and environmental improvements.
