Our development partner have now sold the majority of their flats available above the centre. If you are interested, please contact the Notting Hill Housing Trust on 020 8357 444 or sales@nhhg.org.uk.


We have now raised over 85% of the funds required to complete the project. We are very grateful for the support given to us by Notting Hill Housing Trust, our development partner, and the London Borough of Southwark.

We still need to raise the final amount to fully complete and equip the building. If you would like to contribute either with a donation of funds or equipment, please get in touch.
