Recent events – bringing our community together

Barking Riverside has seen many community events in recent months, including the opening of The Wilds, art exhibitions, Supper Clubs, and a winter market.
Home to a well-established and proudly diverse community, Riversiders play a leading role in making the neighbourhood a fun and fulfilling place to live, work and visit.

From the resident events panel to the editorial board who write the local newsletter, residents take an active part in running a programme of initiatives that benefit all. Together, we make Barking Riverside a place that everyone can be proud of.

The Community Interest Company

The Barking Riverside Community Interest Company (CIC) is a bespoke, not-for-profit social enterprise that will eventually be responsible for holding, managing and maintaining the Barking Riverside estate. The CIC will also have a focus on providing community benefit across Barking Riverside. Steered by a Board that will prioritise resident directors, the CIC will enable a much higher level of resident-led decision making.

A place for everyone

Several of the current and future facilities at Barking Riverside have been co-designed with local people. This includes the local playparks and the new Wellbeing Hub, which will include a GP, a gym and a state-of-the-art waterpark.
