Fundraising And Projects

The Attlee Foundation has a long history of supporting and delivering innovative social projects throughout the UK and beyond. We aim to deliver academic analysis and offer expert advice on particular issues, contributing to the narrative of social integration. Access to opportunities is at the core of the Foundation’s activities and is reflected in its past local and international work, social policy research on issues affecting disadvantaged communities, and direct project work with young people.

As a consequence of its pioneering activity, The Foundation is in a strong position to deliver projects and research either through the Attlee Centre or through its existing partnerships with other agencies and voluntary and academic organisations in East London and nationally.

More information will be coming soon on how you can donate to The Attlee Foundation in order to help us to continue our work in helping disadvantaged young people.

In the meantime, if you would like to donate, please contact us via email –

The Attlee A level Academy

The development of the Attlee A level Academy in Tower Hamlets, New City College, Arbour Square is a multi-purpose complex with sports, adventure play and learning facilities designed to meet the needs of children, young people and the wider local community as a whole. As was originally envisaged, the Attlee Centre has now evolved into a separate community-based organisation, sharing a common commitment to Clement Attlee’s philosophy and ethos.

Bursaries and IT equipment

The Trustees have been working with the Attlee A Level Academy at New City College. Our first joint venture was a competition to find the Clement Attlee Students of the Year, with a top of the range laptop as first prize.

We asked students to produce a piece of work in a medium of their choosing that showed originality, independent thought, discussion and analysis of Clement Attlee, his achievements, government, character and values.

There were lots of entries and the college gave us a shortlist to choose from. These were very interesting, varied and thought provoking, making it difficult to select the winners.

Our next priority is to set up a bursary scheme whereby we can help enable further education for those who might not otherwise afford it.
