Vision and Values

Creating an inspirational neighbourhood

We believe in mixed uses, a diverse economy and a diverse community. We want our neighbourhood to be a place where people feel happy and healthy, safe and secure, and where more than essential needs are met.

A place that enables people to connect with each other, where they can build their confidence and skills whatever their age, and feel they belong. Most importantly we want our community to be resilient to life’s challenges.

We want our neighbourhood to have a wide range of job opportunities and businesses; to be a place where creative arts flourish and are accessible to all; where quality homes and green spaces are the norm; where there is a place to grab a pint of milk or go for a stylish meal; and where there are abundant opportunities for people to play, learn, laugh and share.

We recognise that change is a constant part of London’s history. Since 1984 we have championed change to improve our neighbourhood. We want to work with others who share our vision and to focus on the talents and potential of people to lead their own change.

Our values

We are creative, by looking for solutions rather than problems we will find better ways of doing things. We are collaborative, by respecting the views of others we will learn, grow and achieve more together. We are committed, we do what we say we are going to do and do the best job we can.
