Welcome

South Kilburn’s population is talented, creative and driven. It is an area with many different communities. However it does have higher than average levels of unemployment, poverty, and health concerns, as well as typically lower incomes for those who do work. The South Kilburn Trust was founded in 2011 to help address these issues and create new opportunities.

In 2014, the Trust took over the running of South Kilburn Studios, a well known business incubator and start-up space, which subsequently led to our success in winning funding from the Mayor of London, in partnership with Brent Council, to refurbish much loved old building into a community and workspace hub, The Granville, which re-opened in May 2018.

Committed to community

Mark Allan, chief executive, South Kilburn Trust, writes:

We support Brent Council’s plans to improve the Granville and Carlton Centres.

The plans, which were shaped by ideas and feedback from residents and community groups, will keep the original Carlton building and the main original part of the Granville building, and increase the amount of community space that the current Granville centre offers. The new community spaces will be of a much higher quality, more environmentally sustainable, fully sound-proofed, far more accessible to people with mobility needs, and of a quality that local people deserve for the long term.

Since the South Kilburn Trust started running The Granville last May and opened it up to be accessible to everyone from the local community, we have had over 20,000 visits. We run a wide range of activities and events, the majority of which are free or very low cost to take part in. We offer resident discounts on spaces, which includes a special low rate for local community groups, including to Granville Community Kitchen. In fact all our prices are no higher than those charged at The Granville more than 10 years ago. We have had only one complaint of noise which was quickly resolved by moving the activity to a better room, and even if there is housing on site, we have housing right next door and have proved it can work well together.
