People’s Empowerment Alliance of Custom House

In 2012 money become available from the lottery to fund the Big Local Initiavive which offered £1,000,000 over ten years to selected wards around the Country.  Custom House ward has been lucky to receive Big Local funding to run a £1,000,000 ten year scheme along community priorities.

In the run up phase the Charity participated and argued for the focussing of resources on the development of “community organising” and community initiatives.  The People’s Empowerment Alliance of Custom House (PEACH) was formed and from September 2013 the Charity became the “Trusted Local Organisation” responsible for the initiative’s finances and the employment of PEACH staff.  PEACH has gone from strength to strength and is developing the biggest community run initiative the area has ever seen.
