A women’s charity has launched services at its new home.
Awaaz, an organisation which provides advice on issues such as mental health and domestic violence, celebrated moving into the Loxford Children’s Centre, in Ilford Lane, on Wednesday.
The charity had previously been based at the Loxford Polyclinic for five years.
Chairman Bushra Tahir said: “It was very good. We had a good turn-out and lots of ladies were really happy with the place.
“Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it.”

The group is aiming to launch its services in the borough of Waltham Forest and will be running a Bollywood dance class from September.
