East Ilford Betterment Partnership (EIBP) works on behalf of disadvantaged local people living in the Ilford wards of Redbridge, London. We support people of multiple faiths, cultures and racial groups to integrate into the community, to develop aspirations and realise those aspirations. Much of our work is undertaken in the Clementswood and Loxford areas – where levels of deprivation are high and there is a majority ethnic population with lack of integration of groups into the community.
EIBP also organises and runs charitable events for the benefit of local people. In doing so, we work with a wide range of public and voluntary sector partners. These include Redbridge Council, other local charities and community groups.
Our services are delivered through the Clementswood Community Centre. All are community-focused and aimed at achieving engagement, social integration and safer, healthier communities.
EIBP’s mission is to deliver safe, harmonious multi-cultural communities – where there are low levels of crime and people respect each other and work together to build better lives for themselves and others around them.
We also work with people who are homeless or in danger of becoming homeless and signpost to other organisations/ authorities who can help – such as local Housing Associations, Local Authority, Shelter etc.
We aim to genuinely make a positive impact on all who our work touches.
EIBP ‘s Members and member organisations are drawn from the local community and our work is delivered, managed and monitored by local people – many of whom volunteer their time to the Partnership.
Our Patrons are the MP’s for Ilford North & South & the Worshipful Mayor of Redbridge.
