Enhancing opportunities and improving the quality of life for all, through women’s economic independence.
Women’s economic independence
Seeking solutions which meet the needs of all
account3 is a community training and development co-operative founded in 1991 in Tower Hamlets. Our primary business is working with local women, to find solutions to issues which adversely impact their lives. The company operates a one-stop shop approach to providing advice, support, resources, education to local people using a community development framework to build local capacity and resilience.
Established in culturally rich and diverse Bethnal Green, an area of East London which is home to socially and economically excluded minority groups from across the globe, account3’s overall driver is gender equality and economic independence for women with particular reference to women facing multiple disadvantages. This focus does not preclude our working with men and families in order to benefit women and their families.
Account3 is a BME women led organisation. Our Board members are a diverse group of professional local women with a passion for women’s development and inclusion.
Our Staff Team and volunteers
account3 staff team comprises a cultural and linguistically diverse group reflecting the local community.
