LARG is run by local residents, for local residents. Working across a number of neighbourhoods within the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, their charitable objectives are focused on supporting local communities to create opportunities and utilise these initiatives to build strong relationships and cohesive communities. Historically, LARG is very fluent with local needs and familiar with demographics and gaps in service and have an enduring focus on promoting well-being and concentrating resources on tackling social issues and barriers that inhibit progression. LARG are long-standing practitioners with over 15 years of service delivery within local communities.
LARG’s projects from the past have included: running young people’s summer schemes, providing activities for young people aged 8-13 years; renovation and upkeep of green spaces within Tower Hamlets; and various environmental initiatives, including litter-picking events, dog-chipping sessions and recycling schemes.
