About Toynbee Hall:
Toynbee Hall is a community organisation that pioneers ways to reduce structural disadvantage. Based in the East End of London, we work alongside people who live here, to tackle unfairness and make this a place where everyone has an equal chance to thrive.

We take an asset based approach to our work, and believe everyone has something valuable to offer in the fight for a fairer London. What we learn from our work in London we use to influence change across the UK.

Soapbox is a space where young people can try new things, create, make and showcase their talents and have fun.

You can develop skills in digital media and technology, music and video production, 3D printing, VR, AR and more!
