The Ithaca House Clean up project

The Independent Newham Users Forum (INUF) is an independent user-led mental Health charity. Our goal is to support and assist our members on the long road to recovery. We provide a safe haven for all at Ithaca House and run various events and activities to help boost confidence and skills for all our members. The atmosphere is informal and relaxed making INUF an inviting place for all to use on a daily basis to socialise, find a voice and improve their every day quality of life. INUF has established a wide range of activities over the past few years, such as, the INUF Sports Project, a daily facilitated Drop in, a two day a week Advocacy project, IT/NVQ training classes, a women’s only workshop, an art workshop and many more.

Wild Flower Planting: Community Volunteer Day

We had a great day planting wild flowers at our De Frene site on Saturday 18th July. The wild flowers not only look great but will help increase biodiversity, ecosystem health and resilience as well as attracting pollinating insects, which will benefit all of our other crops.  Come and join us for our Plum Pruning workshop Saturday 15th August, 10:30 to 2pm. De Frene, Sydenham. Email me at for more details. Check out the link for the workshop here:
