THE RENEWAL PROGRAMME is a charity founded in 1971. The charity's initial focus was as a community development organisation with its ethos led by Christian principles. Over the years the charity has evolved and changed, and in recent years has established itself as a trusted provider of a range of quality services for the local community in Newham.
Led by The Chief Executive Officer Ruth Bravery, the Renewal Programme is sensitive to the changing needs of the community, with the Board of Management providing clear direction in developing its mission and strategy for the benefit of disadvantaged people in Newham.
Whilst we have remained true to the Christian principles upon which the charity was founded, our services are very firmly offered to everyone on the basis of need, irrespective of faith. We work with people in a personal way, to provide them with the tools and support to address the challenges they are facing and turn their life around. Our wide range of services rooted in the local community is what sets us apart.
We achieve our goals in these ways:
We provide space for community use at reasonable prices.
