Objectives

Established in 2009, South Kilburn Trust is a locally focused place-based charity, born of and central to the regeneration of South Kilburn in London, one of the most deprived areas in England. Our role is to understand and champion the needs of South Kilburn’s diverse communities and provide spaces, services, opportunities and support that enable them to thrive. We do this principally through The Granville, our multi-purpose community space in the heart of South Kilburn, providing a range of services, activities and events.

South Kilburn’s communities face many challenges: of the four local neighbourhoods within the area, all are in the 20 per cent most deprived areas across England; almost half of the adult population are not in work, with employment rates low among disabled residents, Muslim residents, women, and those from Black and Minority Ethnic groups (BME groups make up 40 per cent of the population, with a high proportion of young people under 25). Almost one third of residents do not speak English as their main language, a significant percentage have disabilities or long-term health problems, and numbers of one parent and one person households are high.

Activities

South Kilburn Trust provides a range of services, activities and events, principally through The Granville, our multi-purpose community space in the heart of South Kilburn, where we offer co-working spaces, an enterprise hub, venue hire, recording studios, sports, health and wellbeing, music production, games and crafts. We will soon take control of our new flagship centre, The Carlton and Granville, with 1,410 sq./m of community- and workspace across four buildings, significantly amplifying the Trust’s social, educational and economic impact.
