Our Story

We've loved every minute of our journey



Choices (London) C.I.C Ltd was incorporated in August 2010 under the directorship of Sheri Lawal who gained considerable community work experience supporting the aspirations of challenged and vulnerable groups through a long career with various housing associations.

Her journey alerted her to some of the problems which people in local neighbourhoods faced, such as poverty, education, financial barriers and crime.

Sheri is the founder and director of Choices and is currently the:
