A pot of money, known as a Community Development Fund, was put aside by Paradigm to help develop a community on a newly built estate. The fund has been used for many community activities, including projects to help the residents get to know each other.
West Ham United Community Coaches were bought in to run weekly football training sessions for the children, to help them make friends, exercise and keep busy. Families were also invited on a day trip to tour the West Ham Football Stadium.
One resident said :
"...it's really good that the Housing Associations take an interest in their residents and care about the communities"
