Powered by our local readers

Roman Road LDN is published by Social Streets CIC, a not-for-profit news and media group that publishes four online titles and a print magazine in Tower Hamlets, as part of our borough model of community journalism.

Our content, both online and in print, is freely available to everyone rather than being put behind a paywall or membership scheme. This is because we think the benefits of an independent press should be freely available to everyone.

We are powered by our readers. Small monthly and single donations from hundreds of local people mean we can keep our content freely available to everyone, rather than behind a paywall or membership scheme, allowing everyone living in our area to benefit from high-quality, local journalism.

Please consider a donation to support our community work. We are a tiny team and we don’t yet cover our costs. You can donate for as little as £3 per month. Collectively this makes all the difference and will help ensure we continue to build a better local media that serves the local community.
