Support local journalism by becoming a member today. Our community of 300 paying members makes our work possible, but this still only covers 25% of our editorial team of two. We need to reach our target of 500 members to be able to continue operating.
We aim to be fully funded by our members because we want to be accountable to the local community we serve and not to outside sponsors. As a social enterprise, you can trust that every penny of profit we make goes back into our community work. At the moment the collective donations from our 300 members fund 25% of the wages for Roman Road LDN’s editorial team of two, that’s 13% of our overall operating costs. We urgently need to increase our community of members to continue to operate. Do you value our role as a trusted local media organisation that works for the benefit of our community? If so please support us by becoming a member today.

Stuart Cox, St Margaret’s House
St Margaret’s House has really benefited from our collaboration with Roman Road LDN. We really wanted to connect locally with new audiences and we wanted to work with a digital organisation who were imaginative in their way of going about this. They are friendly, creative and fun to work with but also very strategic and professional. They have really added value to our project and helped increase our community engagement in Tower Hamlets
Peter H, Individual Member
Having recently moved to Bethnal Green, Roman Road LDN has been a really great way to learn more about what’s going on in the area. There are so many shops, places to eat and pieces of history that I definitely wouldn’t have discovered without signing up.
Jane D., Individual Member
I love getting Roman Road LDN – thank you so much! Fascinating articles and such excellent journalism – one of the best things to arrive in my inbox each week! It’s one of my little luxuries, to settle down with a cup of tea and read it.
Mike M., Neighbourhood Forum
Social Street’s news and articles on local businesses, housing and local campaigns have been a valuable source of information as we have developed the neighbourhood plan. During the pandemic they came to our rescue by enabling us to share the draft neighbourhood plan virtually, and obtain local feedback. This community magazine is a precious local resource.
Isaac C., Muxima
Roman Road LDN has been fantastic for our business. We have been using them to promote our events at a reasonable cost and have brought exposure to our venue, Muxima. They have single-handedly brought the community of Tower Hamlets together during Covid.
