Welcome to the Magpie Project





At present our regular service has been suspended – we are currently acting as a hub for donations and sorting food parcels – We are open Monday and Wednesday 10 to 2pm. Please consider helping. Here’s How.


We can’t solve the housing crisis, but we believe in making mums and children’s lives better during their time in temporary accommodation.

We provide practical support and advice to mothers and children under five in temporary or insecure accommodation in Newham.

We believe all children have a right to a secure, safe place to play, healthy food, engaged parents, and access support no matter what their family circumstances.

Some 80% of mums have No Recourse to Public Funds when they come to find help from us.
