About BD Community Resources


We are all about collaboration - connecting people, projects and places.

BD_Collective brings the social sector of Barking and Dagenham together in partnership with others - organisations joining forces to address local challenges, develop initiatives, share good practice and showcase success.

We can connect you with people to:

  • Develop joint funding bids
  • Collaborate on projects
  • Mentor & share learning


Steering Group

Moving into Year 2, we have transitioned the Interim Board into the Steering Group.  This group is made up of people who are leading on BD_Collective related activities, primarily Networks.  As new networks are formed, the co-ordinator will be added into the Steering Group.

There will also be a Learning Group, made up of people from the Steering Group who will ensure all activity across Networks and other initiatives is driven by the Collective’s 4 values.  Members will self-select and there will be a maximum of 6 at any one time.

Please note:  Members of the Steering Group will be published by the end of July 2020.

The Charter

We have a set of simple statements about the basis of our working together. Take a moment to review our Charter - we hold each other to these principles.

Meetings & Plans

Notes from the meeting of the Board will be published here along with forthcoming plans.
