The Dalgarno Trust is a community centre for people in North Kensington.

We provide a safe, happy place to come for everyone in our local community, and we run projects and services promoting health, wellbeing and inclusion. Whether you are 9 weeks or 90 years old, we run an activity for you.

We work in partnership with the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea delivering core services and our youth programme. We are proud to be a part of the Health Partners Programme with other community, voluntary, faith groups and residents associations working in the community of North Kensington, brought together by NHS West London Clinical Commissioning Group.

Our objectives are to

  • Bring adults and children of all ages from diverse and disadvantaged backgrounds together, to help fulfil their potential and break the cycle of poverty, ill-health and deprivation.
  • Offer a range of services for self-development. These include access to health and well-being awareness, education, training, and social and cultural opportunities.
  • Create, develop and support a strong, inclusive, vibrant and active neighbourhood.
  • Make sure that services, facilities and amenities are of the highest quality and accessible to all individuals and our community.
  • Work for all members of the community. We are committed to inclusion and diversity for all.

All are welcome at our centre.
