Mission Focus for December

Thank you for supporting the Alternatives Trust East London. 

Highlights from the year include Alt-Ed Talks to educate girls who are at risk, the We are Family hub providing learning & support and an opportunity to DOUBLE any funds we raise.
Many of the girls we work with need intensive support.  We work with youth groups and secondary schools to deliver Alt-Ed talks and our new ‘Respect Us’ workshops.  New volunteers are helping us deliver training on Alt-Ed and Respect Us so that we can deliver more sessions across Newham. 
The young mums we work with need a safe place where they can meet, do craft, share experiences and get help with their challenges.   Our WAF hub is now open as a drop-in on Thursdays, run by new volunteers. The shop is looking for clothes and household items (not furniture) in good condition to give to our families, or to sell to raise funds.

If you would like to support us with a financial donation, we are part of The Big Give Challenge.  This runs from 27 November to 4 December, donations received during this week will be DOUBLED. Please go to and enter ’alternatives trust’ to make a donation between these dates.

If you would like to find out more, our Facebook page has videos and updates;, or you can email us on
