Forest Gate office closed for refurbishment

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.
