Geographical remit: 


We aim to prevent members of the Kilburn community experiencing isolation, exclusion and poverty. We want all the members of our community to:

  • Enjoy and benefit from all stages of their lives - children, young people, adults, parents and elders.
  • Be well informed about important matters of money, law and public policy
  • Feel secure and be a full member of the community through common interests and social opportunities
  • Enjoy well-being through leisure and learning activities that are affordable and local
  • Overcome disadvantage and inequality.


We resource and directly provide the following services:

  • Pre-school for children aged 2-5 years (OFSTED registered)
  • Drop-ins for children aged 0-4 years , and a crèche service for other local venues
  • An out-of-school play service for children aged 8 plus

Through volunteer and pro-bono support Kingsgate also enables a wide programme of ICT training, legal advice, and activities for the over-50s.


We have a range of spaces for short and long term use including a large hall with excellent sound and lighting, a small hall with kitchen, a number of offices and small meeting rooms. Charges for these spaces range from very affordable for local charitable and voluntary use, to more competitive for businesses and private hirers. In these spaces, we host regular activities, such as keep fit for over 50s, dance, tai chi, advice, and AA, Councillors’ surgeries. The centre is also used on a one-off basis for theatre and film, children’s and family parties, training and other business meetings. 


We are particularly proud to be provide an affordable flexible base for the Camden Somali Cultural Centre, who run advice sessions and operate a supplementary school for children aged 6-18. They are our principal resident partners.


We enable services which are designed and run by local providers/ community enablers and local volunteer residents – as well as co-produce activities with volunteers


The award-winning Lounge Café offers high quality affordable snacks and meals within the Centre, which provides a base for local people and small businesses.
