About us

The Charity was originally founded as a registered charity in 1976 and its continuing aim is to provide accessible and inclusive community services to the Woolwich Riverside ward. It is our goal to provide a positive contribution to the local area via the provision of services to local community groups facilitating the creation of a cohesive community spirit and social benefits.

We aim to facilitate the recreation or other leisure time occupation for the members of the public at large, in order to improve the conditions of life for those persons making use of the facilities.

Our premises include a large hall building which is hired out to a cross-section of community, voluntary and statutory groups on a regular basis and a community house providing 3 offices, a counselling room and general purpose/meeting room. The venue is also available to hire for private functions, training sessions and meetings.
