Get to know us and our cause
Established in 1980, Alpha Grove is a charity and community hub located in an area of London with high levels of deprivation. Our mission is to provide resources and services that empower residents to live healthier and more prosperous lives.
We are committed to fostering positive change by providing opportunities for residents to make informed life changes, address unemployment, and improve educational attainment and skills deficits. We listen to feedback from local residents to shape our activities and offer practical services such as information, advice and guidance, community resources, training opportunities, and facilities for conferences, meetings and community groups.
At Alpha Grove, we value community engagement, celebration, volunteering, and employment. We also provide advice on healthy eating, wellbeing, and social activities to empower residents to come together, share and improve their lives.
We are doingthe right thing,at the right time
Alpha Grove strives to inspire and empower residents facing significant challenges such as housing overcrowding, child poverty, poor education, skill deficits, unemployment, and benefits dependency. We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to make positive and informed life changes.
Our goal is to address the deeply rooted and complex social disadvantages that contribute to poverty and health inequality. In addition to practical services and resources, we provide guidance on healthy eating, wellbeing, and social activities that foster community engagement and improvement.
What makes us diferent?
As a charity, we are driven by a strong sense of purpose and are committed to making a positive impact in our community, inspiring others to take action.
As a charity, it is important to prioritize inclusivity in all aspects of our work. This means valuing and respecting the diversity of our community, including differences in race, ethnicity, ability, socio-economic status.
By actively listening to feedback and responding with meaningful action, we can ensure that our programs and services remain relevant and effective.
This value emphasizes the importance of building strong relationships with community members, understanding their unique challenges and priorities, and working collaboratively to develop effective solutions.
In addition to our primary mission of empowering residents to live healthier and more prosperous lives, Alpha Grove also offers a range of community resources and services. These include training opportunities, internet café access, community facilities, and professional room hire for conferences, meetings, and community groups. We also provide free internet access with training facilities for local schools and businesses.
Through these offerings, we strive to provide the necessary tools and resources to help individuals and groups achieve their goals and improve their lives. Additionally, we recognize that deeply-rooted social disadvantages contribute to poverty and health inequality, and as such, we also provide helpful advice on healthy eating, wellbeing, and social activities to bring residents together and facilitate positive change.
