Meet Aston-Mansfield

Aston-Mansfield is a long established East London Charity with a significant youth programme.

We play a key role in tackling poverty, deprivation, disadvantage and powerlessness by providing an impressive range of cultural, sports, recreational and educational services within three programme strands:

  • Community Development focuses on providing projects and services which harness the considerable energy and commitment of the many groups and individuals working to better the community.
  • Healthy Living covers all aspects of an individual's mind, body and spirit and our services address the particular needs of our community, tackling local factors which contribute to health inequality.
  • Lifelong Learning promotes the concept that everyone has the potential to learn, grow and be an active part of the community regardless of age, background and ability.

We are based in east London with two community centres: Durning Hall in Forest Gate and The Froud Centre in Manor Park. Our centres provide the environment in which the community, at all levels and in all its guises, can come together and tap into the energy of Newham. They provide everything from, for example, office space for campaigning groups right down to a place for someone to drop in for coffee and a welcoming word.

Our vision is that east London will have the diversity and community wealth to create a vibrant inclusive society. Ourmission is to develop the community wealth of east London and promote a diverse and inclusive society in which all are free to participate.
