Where to find us



Organisation aims / mission / values

  • Our vision is of a respectful and friendly community, where people help each other learn, develop and grow a network of support.
  • Our mission is to build the skills, knowledge and confidence of the community so that together we can make our area a better place to live.
  • We do this by investing in people to enable them to realise their potential.
  • By creating a mutually respectful, friendly, supportive environment where we work with people to help them learn, develop and solve their problems
  • By working with others (public, private and voluntary sector groups and organisations) to create a network of support for our community

How we deliver these aims

I recommend Hoxton Community Garden as a place to volunteer and visit because of its beauty and peacefulness. Gardens are what we all need for our wellbeing and volunteers are crucial. I have done seeding, organising pots and planting a Quince sapling. I have been looking for work in horticulture and Stephen, the Community Gardener has been very supportive and given me guidance on things I would need to know. - Fiona JUNE 2019

Who benefits from our work

We have been providing legal advice since 1993 and focus on the key needs of our clients: debt, housing, benefits and commercial concerns like mobile phone contracts/bills etc. We deliver our free service in our offices on Hoxton St and at three GP surgeries in the local area. Our award-winning community garden provides an oasis of beautiful green space in a densely populated urban area where more than 80% of people rent a flat (3 times the national average), most without their own garden. As well as a place to be, the garden hosts numerous groups and community events that help reduce isolation, break down barriers and boost social cohesion. In an area that has changed rapidly over the last four decades and continues to change, the importance of this cannot be overstated.
