Welcome to the Magpie Project




It takes a village to raise a child.

Due to the ever-changing Covid guidelines we are running a different service to usual.
We are avoiding face to face sessions, case work is remote or by appointment. We are distributing essentials, food, equipment, nappies, craft items etc at the door.

Workshops, crafts, stories, and peer support are happening online.

Please keep an eye on our socials and site to see how things are changing.


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 to 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.
