The Globe Community Project (GCP) is a charity which has been supporting communities in London's East End since 2002, mainly in Tower Hamlets and Hackney. The charity was set up to respond to the social disadvantage and suffering of people living in these areas.
Current projects include a "Wellbeing for Elders" course, and this new project, "Take Back Your Life" which is being pioneered in the local housing estates to alleviate chronic pain. Also in the pipeline is a yoga project for refugees.
Since 2002 the GCP has provided courses and workshops: • to promote social cohesion through drama and storytelling • to help unemployed women to prepare for employment • to help ex-offenders to reintegrate into their communities using drama • to provide a weekly benefit advice service in English and Bengali
