    Are you a Newham employer or resident looking for employment?

    For some time now we have been raising awareness of The Real Living Wage, our campaign work with local groups and businesses and the impact of the Cost of Living Crisis. Groundwork is an organisation established in the 1980s to bring people, businesses and the Government together in a way that changes lives. Since then, it has helped community projects all over the UK to grow – from community gardeners, to men in sheds to aspiring musicians – and now, in partnership with the Royal Docks, Groundwork London is helping Newham residents and employers create opportunities to build careers and save the planet.

    5 things you can do to help with the cost-of-living crisis

    Following our blog about the emergency provisions being made for families and workers struggling with the cost-of-living crisis, Newham Council have launched a Here to Help booklet. The new booklet lists help available by subject (Money, Housing, Food, Energy and Health). Newham has one of the most extreme contrasts between affluence and poverty in one neighbourhood. But its problems are being replicated for families up and down the UK. This needs to be addressed by central government but in the meantime we don’t have to sit by while people on our doorstep choose between eating or heating. Here are five things that all businesses can do to help with the cost-of-living crisis…


  • The secrets to getting the most from your design, print and web

    The secrets to getting the most from your design, print and web

    You may have seen this recent meme about tricky feedback for designers? It made us smile. There have been others in the past which are also very funny. While these help designers laugh-rather-than-cry at the more challenging aspects of their role and perhaps show clients how not to approach working with us, they don’t show clients how they should give feedback. And yet the most successful campaigns we have been involved in have been the ones with the best feedback. So, here’s our Marcomedia guide to getting even more from your design, print and web suppliers…

  • Every employer should read this

    Every employer should read this

    Winter may be coming to an end but the cost-of-living-crisis continues. People who know us will know that we are supporters and campaigners for the Real Living Wage – from our accreditation to our involvement in the Royal Docks Living Wage Action Group. Our borough of Newham is one of the most exciting and diverse boroughs in the world but it also has one of the highest rates of social deprivation as this latest story from Newham Council starkly shows. These cases aren’t confined to Newham and are happening up and down the UK right now. And that’s why every employer needs to read on so that they can do the right thing and ensure their employees earn enough to live on…
