Enterprise, creativity and learning

We believe in people’s ability to lead their own change, and shape the world for the better. 

Learning can happen everywhere and should be available to everyone. As well as our youth mentoring and tutoring sessions, we help people get ready for employment and support those who want to take their business to the next level. 

We provide small enterprises with the space and support they need to thrive. Oxo Tower Wharf and Gabriel's Wharf are home to independent designer-makers, restaurants and shops, with around 1,000 people employed in these businesses on our site.

From our over 50s art group to arts and crafts in stay 'n' play sessions to the wonderful art that comes out of our youth clubs, we give people of all ages and backgrounds the chance to get creative.
