Welcome to the Dalgarno Trust

The Dalgarno Trust is dedicated to providing excellent services that promote a collaborative, healthy and dynamic local community for people of all ages and backgrounds.

Community & Partnership

The Dalgarno Trust is a young, vibrant charity that focuses on working within the community and in partnership with local statutory and voluntary partners and social enterprises.

Established in 2004, based in the far northern tip of the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea, we are a community anchor, dedicated to enriching the lives of the local people. We work with a vastly diverse collection of community groups of all ages who use our services and extensive facilities to support their activities.

Stakeholders & Community Members

In the short time of our existence, we have made huge steps in partnership with other stakeholders and community members to improve the living conditions of the local area, little more than 10 years ago the Evening Standard branded it “one of the worst housing ghettos in Britain.” when “The Crime and Disorder Audit revealed a rate of calls for assistance of 75 per 1,000 residents”.

Today there is little resemblance to this level of unrest. Our commitment to the community now is as strong as it ever has been, having received funds for the renovation and refurbishment of the community centre in 2012 and the work now completed - we are thrilled to be entering into a new phase of development.

Our Youth Projects, Oasis Café and catering facilities, revamped gym and fitness amenities, refurbished function rooms and a hub designed for and dedicated to the development of micro businesses are just some of the exciting projects we are undertaking to make sure we continue to build better futures… together.
