The Dockland Settlements has been supporting local communities since 1884.

The Dockland Settlements provide a variety of health and social activities and a venue for local led projects.

With your support we will be able to improve each of our centres and provide more services to tackle the deprivation in our local community and to reach out to vulnerable groups that are otherwise ignored.

We are truly a community anchor for the diverse areas around our centres, addressing a variety of needs. We will continue to improve the quality of people's lives.

Playcare at Stratford

We pride ourself on a high quality childcare provision that has been established for over 15 years. Registered with OFSTED the Childcare complies with all standards of safeguarding children. The provision is unique as it is based on old fashioned values and principles. Children will continue to climb trees, play with worms and are encouraged to set their own boundries and goals in a safe, warm and friendly environment.

Sports Hall 4


Isle of Dogs


The Dockland Settlements has recently sold this Community Centre to the Canary Wharf College - a new free school on the Isle of Dogs. It was sad to say good bye to the building but we could not think of a better use for the building than the education of children aged from 4 to 12.

The Carpenters & Dockland Centre is situated on the Carpenters Estate, a stone's throw from the Olympic Stadium. The centre has a purpose built Martial Arts Studio or Dojo, a large indoor sports hall as well as meeting rooms and other halls for hire. The centre also hosts an all-year round playcare service.

The Settlement is currently being rebuilt by Denne in partnership with Family Mosaic. If you are interested in hiring a hall or the 3G astro-turf outdoor 5 a side pitch please contact us. We are also keen to find volunteers for the centre once it opens.
