Waltham Forest Hub

About Waltham Forest Hub

Social Spider CIC, the publishers of Waltham Forest Echo, have created this online hub to help community groups, social enterprises and charities in the borough connect with local people at this time of social distancing. Our aims are to:

  • Enable local charities and community groups to promote their services and activities online
  • Help local people to find basic information about local organisations - and to connect to local services and activities
  • Promote and supports community action
  • We have created an interactive map that can easily be filled in by local charities. Just click here. The map is freely available so that local people can find charities in their area and charities can advertise their mission and connect with volunteers. The more detailed information we collect, the better the map will be for local people wanting to know more about what is going on in their local area.

We hope that the hub will also help community groups to connect with each other. Please share widely and do let us know if you have any feedback by emailing [email protected] .
