Thames Ironworks Heritage Trust

"The Thames Ironworks Heritage Trust's goal is to revive the shipbuilding and wider manufacturing heritage of east London.

The charity aims to do this primarily through the restoration of a number of Thames Ironworks-made lifeboats close to the place where they were originally built over 100 years ago, creating employment and new skills for apprentices in the process. When restored, the boats will be put to work in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and surrounding waterways of east London, conducting tours of the area that focus on its industrial heritage, bringing an educational aspect to the newly-restored waterways as well as offering further opportunities for employment and training to young people.
