STORM aims to address social issues, such as poverty, unemployment and youth crime by providing support to those who need it most. The organisation was originally formed with one simple aim - to help single mothers who need support. STORM, which stands for Support, Trust, Opportunity, Rebuilding and Motivation, was formed in 2004 and focuses on supporting members of the population within the Black Ethnic Minority and hard-to-reach groups in Wandsworth and neighbouring areas. It is based on the Doddington & Rollo estate in North Battersea.

To meet its aims, STORM offers a wide range of support with a focus on education, social events, refuge and work opportunities. It offers a job club every Thursday, 10:30am-3pm, to help people through the whole process of securing a job.

STORM works to help:

- Abused women and single mothers gain the confidence and support they need to find their way in to the work force
- People who have been dependent on benefits for many years, to access the education and support necessary to get back to work
- Young people: steering them away from knife and gun crime, and giving them the opportunity and motivation to change their lives
- Create community cohesion
