The New Cross Gate Trust works to provide positive opportunities to local people of all ages and backgrounds. We want to support our local community to lead happy, healthy, stable and fulfilled lives. We want to help build a community in New Cross Gate that is inclusive, confident and ambitious for themselves and for the area, supporting one another to achieve our full potential. We are based in the beautiful Besson Street Community Gardens – a real working, fruit-and-veg growing garden with attached community space, where many of our community activities are delivered. Our activities include employment support, certificated adult learning courses including digital skills, ESOL and level 2 employment focussed courses, community activities including gardening clubs and sewing workshops, conversation cafe and bee-keeping, community events, youth activities including under 5 stay and play, music lessons, and our summer skills programme. There's always something happening, or just someone to talk to to direct you to local services.

The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
