NELCE has been a part of the North East Community since 2006. This year, we have re-branded! Our new logo and tag line represent the continuum of how we hope to engage residents – PARTICIPATE in one of our programs and/or events, get involved as a VOLUNTEER, and then take a LEADership position.

We continue to be a resident-based, action-oriented community group focused on strengthening and improving the community of Northeast London. Through our work we promote and develop a strong sense of community pride and participation, provide opportunities to develop personal growth and leadership within our community, encourage involvement across our diverse community and support community partnership within North East London.

NELCE is led by a coordinating committee and are committed to the following values:

  • All members are equal
  • We are all LEADERS in our community
  • We will provide an inclusive, diverse, and safe environment.
