The Dagenham United Charity gives financial assistance to those in need (generally at Christmas time) and the area of benefit is the former Borough of Dagenham as at 1921 - 1924. There are 5 trustees, 4 of which are appointed by the Council and may be, but do not need to be, elected Members of the Council. They are elected for a 4 year term of office and these appointments are staggered to maintain continuity. The 5th trustee is an ex-officio position.
