About the projects

Two different projects are currently being run by Manor House Development Trust at the Redmond Community Centre. These projects are in response to low income families who have been greatly affected by the coronavirus outbreak.

The first is ‘Hackney Emergency Food Hub’. This is a service where healthy, cooked meals are to be prepared and delivered to vulnerable households with children across Woodberry Down, Manor House.

The second project is ‘Woodberry Connect’. This is all about providing digital support for local residents who struggle with utilising electronic devices as well as the internet. Due to the restrictive nature of the pandemic we aim to reduce isolation and promote online social engagement.
