The Community

Dot Dot Dot is particularly excited to offer housing in and around Custom House in Newham. We are collaborating with partner organisations in order to help Custom House to become an ever more dynamic and thriving place for living and working. Look out for more information soon, but the summary is that we’re looking to house guardians who are keen to commit to the local area as a place to live, work and volunteer.

Our guardians living in Newham will be key contributors to a project which spans the whole neighbourhood, through participating in community engagement activities, sharing their skills through their volunteering and as potential customers for new work and retail activities in the area.

If this sounds like something you’re interested in getting involved with, you can apply to be a property guardian in Custom House here.
