Past Projects

LUOS’s successful ‘can do’ and ‘By the community - For the community’ approach has secured funding and commissions to deliver a wide range of innovative community empowerment projects and services - responding to key community needs and aspirations – including:
Well Park Lane, Home from Hospital, Neighbourhood Connect, Collective Switching, Personal Travel Planning and Blooming Beds and Bees.
In our projects we purposefully recruit, train and support unemployed or underemployed local residents who are paid above the London Living Wage. We also create pathways to employment by training and supporting volunteers.

Stories from the Community

  • Martin

    I felt increasingly empowered and invested in my community - I wanted others to experience what I was experiencing. I can say without hesitation the decision to volunteer at Living Under One Sun allotment on a cold and wet January morning was one of the best decisions that I ever made.
  • Diane

    The community allotment is hub of activity, yet an oasis of peace, hidden in Tottenham Hale.[...] There’s a great 'welcome' from LUOS staff, with general support/ instructions on gardening tasks and safety from these and other trained instructors. There are loads of tasks to choose from nothing is compulsory. There’s a real mixture of people, ages, talents and abilities.
