Swan has commissioned Social Life to carry out some research on Craylands in order to better understand needs, issues and aspirations of residents living there.
The research will help Swan identify the types of community activities and services needed and wanted by residents on the estate. Social Life, which is a small social enterprise staffed with experienced researchers, will be conducting interviews and focus groups with residents as well as representatives of local community groups and service providers.

The Forest Gate PFI Office is now closed for refurbishment and is due to re-open on Monday 7 August 2017. During this period staff have been relocated to our other offices in Blackwall Reach and Stratford.
During the refurbishment, we will be running local drop-in sessions and will minimise the inconvenience to our residents as much as possible.
The telephone number remains the same and you will still be able to contact the Staff on their usual numbers.
Many thanks for your patience and understanding whilst we carry out the work.
Swan now has planning approval to complete the remaining phases of our regeneration of Craylands. However, we still need the local community’s input on the key elements of the project, including the community hub and green spaces. We are therefore holding an information day on Saturday 28 January 2017 from 11am until 2pm at the Beech Community Centre. Please come along and give us your views. More information about the event can be found on the poster.
