About the South Kilburn Trust
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.
What is our long term vision for South Kilburn?
The Trust’s vision is to support people in South Kilburn improve their lives and make their communities stronger, happier and healthier. We do this by providing a range of quality space, opportunities, and support, principally through The Granville, our recently opened multi-purpose community and workspace hub in the heart of South Kilburn.
What's our strategic focus for 2018-19?
Our focus in 2018-19 covers four main areas:
- To make The Granville a thriving hub, open to everyone, at the heart of the local community.
- To maintain and develop funded services that support local people, either provided by the Trust or in collaboration with other organisations.
- To secure Phase 2 as part of the redevelopment proposals for the Carlton-Granville site.
- To ensure both the Trust and The Granville are becoming increasing financially sustainable in the long term.
