Kentish Town Community Centre
Volunteer Trustee Treasurer –
We’re a modern and forward looking community centre, and our board reflects this. We’re constantly adapting how we communicate and make decisions.
Our fantastic staff support people in setting up new courses and activities at our beautiful centre. From Pilates to Addiction Recovery, from Martial Arts to Cake Decorating.
We’re also a food bank hub for Kentish Town, with free or low cost physical and mental health services. We have our own in-house Youth Service, Older People’s Service, Free Legal Advice and a free membership scheme with events open to all.
