Arts Council-funded initiative Havering Changing hopes to put smiles on faces through a series of creative projects.
Let's Make Havering Happy invites people from Harold Hill, Orchard Village, Rainham and Romford to submit creative ideas designed to combat the effects of lockdown.
The project's co-ordinators are Lisa Brennan and Majida Burch, owners of Romford design business Brennan & Burch.
As Havering residents, the pair say this is a "cause close to our hearts"; both creating work for local artists and benefiting those in need.
They're excited to help bring ideas to life which will "make people feel cared for and give them something positive to focus on".
