Community Links

Community Links is a hub tackling health and social inequality in East London and beyond. ​

We work alongside the community helping people of all ages reach their full potential. We take our local knowledge of what works to influence national decision making. We are proud to be part of Catch22.​ Our mission is to work towards a world where your potential is not limited by your health or social circumstances.​ From our hub in Canning Town, a historic town hall and centre of social change, we apply the learning from our local work to influence and achieve positive national change.​

We deliver a range of programmes in five key areas of work:​

  • Advice
  • Youth & Employment 
  • Health 
  • Policy 
  • Community

Our health initiatives
