Bromley By Bow Community Organisation (BBBCO)

Empowering the Local Residents of Coventry Cross in Bromley By Bow, one of the most deprived wards in Tower Hamlets to improve their socio-economic and cultural well-being and be able to sustain a good quality of life.

Bromley By Bow Community Organisation (BBBCO) was officially formed in 2004, however, we are a group of senior local individuals who have been involved with organising various activities for the local youths on a voluntary basis since 1990.  The main objective of the organisation is to empower the local residents of Coventry Cross, one of the most deprived wards in Tower Hamlets, and its surrounding areas to improve their socio-economic and cultural well-being and be able to sustain a good quality of life.

We hope to realise this by developing and delivering various programmes and services which will be inclusive and will encourage the full participation of all the local residents near Bromley By Bow Centre, Kingsley Hall and Bromley By Bow Health Centre.

BBBCO uses sports & other creative activities as a tool to divert younger members of the community from drugs, violence, anti social behaviour and territorial dispute which has been alarmingly on the increase.

We also increase participation by developing various programmes which including as many people as possible regardless of age, race, gender, sexual orientation and disabilities to help develop various interpersonal skills such as communication skills, leadership skills, team work and also encourage individuals to express themselves in a positive way and realise their dreams.

We aim to bridge community barriers and address other delicate issues relating to health by educating the local residents in the importance of exercise, healthy diet and the dangers of drugs and alcohol abuse.

Bromley By Bow Community Organisation strongly feel that we can continue to promote our aims and objectives as well as make a positive contribution to the lives of all local residents through teamwork and the support of the our volunteers. 

Bromley By Bow Football Club was formed in 1989 and was originally a 7-A-Side team that consisted of young players within the Bromley By Bow area. As one of the youngest team in the footballing circuit within the East London community, Bromley By Bow FC entered every competition that was advertised including events for open age groups. The Team quickly established a reputation for being one of the best teams in East London by winning the majority of tournaments that the team participated in. As the team matured, it was decided that the best way to progress and move forward as well as increasing participation would be to establish an 11-A-side team.
