Thamesmead was originally designed for a mixed, diverse community and this remains it's greatest legacy. The town is now home to over 45,000 people from all backgrounds and ages.

From north to south, east to west, people play an active role in their community, making Thamesmead a better place to live. Family fun days, canal clean-ups, and street parties - everyone pulls together, lends a hand, and has fun.

In turn, there’s a huge range of support services, cultural associations, community groups, and charities that reflect the needs and interests of the town.
