Welcome to Bonny Downs Community Association

BDCA is a dynamic community-led charity that has been serving the residents of East Ham since 1998.

We strive to make a real and lasting difference to the quality of life of local people by helping our community to CONNECT, be more ACTIVE, take time to REFLECT, keep on LEARNING, GIVE and CELEBRATE more often and SUPPORT each other.

Over time, BDCA has extended its remit to become a multi-purpose organisation delivering high quality affordable events, activities and services through the 4 local venues that we manage: The Well Community Centre, Flanders Playing Field, Bobby Moore Sports Pavilion and the Grow Together Be Together Community Garden.

Our team of locally-based staff and volunteers work together to deliver targeted projects that address specific areas of local need: Sports, Youth, Children & Families, Food, Elders and Poverty Response.
