Annual Review 2015 – 2016

2015 was significant as we embarked on a major new project, ‘From Victorian Gap Year to Community Hub’. With Development funding from Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and Tower Hamlets Council the project aims to provide much needed investment in the building. It also offers an opportunity to create a new and larger café and a new main entrance via the adjacent Derbyshire Street Pocket Park and Weaver’s Field. We will also delve into our own rich history, revealing stories and archiving the history of Oxford House, then using our research to engage with our diverse community during a two year activity plan that combines volunteering and
skills development.

The project is a key feature of our new 3 year strategy developed by trustees during the year and builds on our strength as an independent arts and community space. It removes the significant risk from an ageing building and provides an opportunity to expand our services. We will open a new café/bar and reopen our wonderful secret Chapel for community use. These spaces will enable us to provide more volunteering opportunities and a cultural programme based on our heritage.

It is part of our vision to create a sustainable organisation with new sources of income, increased visitor numbers and exciting programming. It is a challenge but one we relish and means we will continue to be at the heart of a fantastically diverse and changing neighbourhood.

We would like to thank staff, trustees, volunteers, funders, partners and the communities of east London that continue to support our work.
