All About SimpleGifts: Unitarian Centre for Social Action, offering community-based programming in Bethnal Green, London.

Dr Sufia Begum and Jeba Maleque are two Bethnal Green mums who play important role at SimpleGifts. They are both service users and volunteers, community stakeholders at the highest level!

Thank you to the Unitarians in Cheltenham, Glasgow, Hampstead, Lewisham, Godalming, York and Kensington for taking to the pavement in support of migrants everywhere who flee perilous situations in their home countries, seeking a better life for themselves and their families. Anti-migrant rhetoric diminishes us all and shows of solidarity like these can only help strengthen our communities. Well done to all who participated!

Simple Gifts is a Unitarian-led volunteer organisation. We run community programming in Bethnal Green, East London aimed at alleviating the effects of deprivation and improving social cohesion.

Our flagship programme is our After-School Club, which runs on Tuesdays and Thursdays afternoons. Browse the site to find out more about our current projects and about how you can help us with our programming.

We welcome those of all cultures, ages, mental and physical abilities. Our facilities are fully accessible.
