Every One Every Day builds on the imaginative ‘hands on’ projects that people have been creating over the last few years in their own neighbourhoods. These practical projects make everyday life better for everyone, and the initiative has been designed so we can build a very large network of this activity. We need to create a lot of projects together to make a real difference - making life better for families, friends and neighbours. Every One Every Day will work with residents and local organisations to create a network of 250 projects across Barking and Dagenham. These projects include sharing knowledge, spaces and resources, for families to work and play together, for bulk cooking, food growing, tree planting, for trading, making and repairing, and for growing community businesses. FIND OUT MORE Because these types of practical projects are designed for people to work together on an equal footing and are also social and enjoyable we know already that they create lots of mutual benefits for people taking part. They make people feel welcome, happy and connected to neighbours from all walks of life; improve levels of health and wellbeing; increase learning and provide new pathways to work and self employment ... as well as helping to make neighbourhoods kinder to the planet by creating lots of opportunities to grow, share, repair and recycle.
