Participatory City Foundation works with 100s of people in Barking and Dagenham on wonderful neighbourhood projects through Every One Every Day. Together we are building the largest prototype of it’s kind, building large new networks of friendships, ideas and activities.

Neighbourhoods made by everyone, for everyone.






Every One Every Day will be growing a network of projects across Barking and Dagenham, launching in the borough in October and November 2017. It aims to work with all the creativity and energy that already exists in the borough.

Every One Every Day will invite people to suggest ideas for projects and businesses they would like to create together. Through it's network of 5 high street shops the initiative will provide the support needed to bring hundreds of these ideas to life quickly and without any complicated processes.


Business Incubator Programmes

100 New Businesses

From the Warehouse spaces we will be running 4-6 Business Incubator Programmes each year. These will be based on a few specialist themes around the interests expressed by people in Barking and Dagenham.

The borough already has one of London's highest concentrations of businesses making and repairing products, from exclusive leather goods to sliced bread, car repairs to jam. This is an exciting ecosystem which represents the borough's amazing heritage - and a vital part of it's future that will continue to build an inclusive and sustainable local economy.


Public and free co-working and makerspace

The Warehouse will be an open access Makerspace. This means that unlike the majority of makerspaces it will be free use to the residents of Barking and Dagenham. This is a key part of the Every One Every Day initiative, ensuring that there are stepping stones for residents to grow their interests and ideas, from the first cup of tea in one of the neighbourhood shops, through to regular participation in neighbourhood projects ... right through to making and product testing in The Warehouse for those that wish to create new livelihoods.

The Business Development Incubator programmes will take place in The Warehouse, making use of the functional spaces.
