We Care for Our Air Redbridge

Redbridge is running a new project to help raise awareness of all things air quality and improve the health of the most vulnerable in our borough.

Focusing on Loxford, Newbury Park and Goodmayes - areas where residents suffer some of the highest rates of air pollution-related illness - the We Care for Our Air project is running from April 2023 until March 2025.

Schools, GP surgeries and other community organisations are working with us to help us learn more about local air quality, and pass messages to the wider community about the things we can do to tackle the problem and breathe less pollution.

To find out how clean our local area is, we need your help monitoring air pollution levels near your home, school or place of work. No experience is needed as simple free training will be provided.

To sign up and receive a free diffusion tube each month to put up at a place that matters to you, just contact air@mappingforchange.org.uk. It’s free and easy and the more people that join in, the better informed we’ll be!

Air Quality data is now available to view on our Redbridge Community Air Quality Map so everyone can see where air pollution is highest.

Free cycle training and group bike rides are available if you live in Loxford, Newbury Park and Goodmayes. We want residents to feel safe and confident enough to get out and about on their bikes for short journeys and for fun.

    The 'We care for our Air' project aims to raise levels of knowledge and understanding about air quality levels in Redbridge, particularly in the areas of Loxford, Goodmayes and Newbury. We would really like to hear your thoughts about:

    • What is your experience of air quality in your local area?
    • Do you know of anyone who has been or is affected by poor air quality? 
    • What do you think can be done to reduce exposure to poor air quality? 
    • Ideas for small actions we can all take to improve air quality in our daily life?
