About East London Leaders

East London has a vibrant and diverse community and is a unique part of the city where people from different cultures and backgrounds live and work. However, along with the challenges of growing up in London, many young people don’t always have the opportunity to have their voice heard or meet others from different backgrounds.

East London Leaders will support up to 200 young people from five east London boroughs: Tower Hamlets, Newham, Waltham Forest, Redbridge and Barking & Dagenham. Participants will explore what local identity means to them through projects and campaigns that have a positive impact on their local community and amplify their voice to get their message heard.
