New App & Funding for Wood Street

WOOD STREET POST OFFICE BRANCH AWARDED FUNDING FOR COMMUNITY PROJECT

Wood Street Post Office in Walthamstow has been awarded a grant to work with local community organisation, Significant Seams, to develop apps which would act as a virtual community hub. Wood Street Post Office is one of 25 Post Office branches across England chosen as recipients of a grant worth up to £10,000 from the Community Enterprise Fund for their outstanding plans to support local people and businesses, and to tackle isolation amongst the elderly.

Wood Street Post Office will use the grant to develop the app with Significant Seams, a local organisation that supports vulnerable and disadvantaged members of the community. The group will work with specialist support organisations in the area for young people, ethnic communities and victims of domestic violence, and deliver projects to bring support to these members of the community.

The app will be developed by local company App17.
