Compost Newham

Compost Newham has been funded by Newham Council and delivered by Compost London since August 2021, as one of a number of programmes we offer. We decided not to bid for the next contract, so this phase of Compost Newham ends on March 31st. In April we will produce an impact report, which we will share through our website and mailing list.

Since August 2021, with funding from the London Borough of Newham, we've been providing targeted support for Newham groups through one-on-one advice sessions, facilitating networks, helping to obtain funding, and running events and training. We decided not to bid for the next contract, so this phase of Compost Newham ends on March 31st.

What is Compost Newham?

Compost Newham was a two-year targeted programme of activities for Voluntary, Community and Faith sector organisations in Newham.

It focused on providing a range of support to local groups to help them grow, develop and thrive. Its aims were to better connect and equip the sector locally to make the most of local skills, knowledge and resources.

Compost Newham provides a range of activities which include: building and supporting networks, providing training and skills development sessions, offering one-to-one capacity building support (building skills capabilities within an organisation to help it develop), producing and sharing resources.

We decided not to bid for the next contract, so this phase of Compost Newham ends on March 31st. In April we will produce an impact report, which we will share through our website and mailing list.

There will no longer be a bi-weekly newsletter (every other week). The last Compost Newham newsletter under the contract was delivered at the end of March 2024, however, Compost London newsletters will help to keep the sector informed. If you wish to find out more about how we will continue to provide support for local organisations later please Contact us.
