Redbridge Plans

We are delighted to be sharing our exciting plans for a brand new development for the East London and Essex Jewish community on the site of the current Redbridge Jewish Community Centre (RJCC) (formerly known as Sinclair House) with you.


Jewish Care is completely committed to building a stunning £25 million state of the art development in the Essex area. For us, this is not just about physical infrastructure, but the development of the right provision to meet current and future demand for all Jewish Care services for the local community in Essex and East London.

The site in Redbridge will comprise of a wonderful community centre space which will house a centre for people living with dementia along with a 66-bed care home, which our Vi & John Rubens House in Gants Hill will relocate to, at the current RJCC site. Additionally, our Social Work and Meals on Wheels teams will be based on site. 

Following a very successful pre-planning application meeting with the London Borough of Redbridge in November, we are excited to announce that it is now our intention to proceed with our application for planning permission on the site of RJCC. 

Below is an overview of our plans and what parts of the development may look like. Please note that these images are provisional and subject to change. 

We would like to invite you to submit your views on our plans here

In a few weeks’ time there will also be an opportunity for share your support for this wonderful new development. This will be vital in ensuring that our plans are supported to become a reality.

You will be able to find details of how to do this on this page shortly. 

In the meantime, rest assured RJCC’s Day Centre and adult Community Centre, along with our MIKE programme will continue in the interim at Woodford Forest United Synagogue until the new site is open. Our centre for people living with dementia will also continue to operate from within its own dedicated space at Vi & John Rubens House until the new campus is open.
