Let's Change Lives and Transform Newham Together!


Welcome to Bonny Downs Community Association!

We’re a dynamic community-led charity and we’ve been working to make real and lasting difference to people’s lives in Newham ever since we started in 1998.

Get involved!

We’d love you to get involved, whether you’re interested in joining one of our activities or someone in need of a helping hand. Why not check out our calendar to see what’s on?

We’ve also adapted many of our services in response to the pandemic and  provide emergency food and essentials to help the community through the crisis.
