Alternatives Trust East London  works with women in the London Borough of Newham with complicated needs who seek help when they are pregnant or have a baby, supporting them through immediate crisis and helping them become a stable family where mums are working and children are safe and happy and part of a community.  Staff and volunteers provide signposting, advocacy, support and referrals to help with housing, immigration and other issues that have caused poverty. Trauma counselling is provided free by eight volunteer counsellors.   Alternatives Trust East London was awarded a Major Grant of £60,000 over three years for the salary costs of two part-time support workers.
