Who Are We?
Highbury RoundHouse is a local community organisation born in the heart of Islington. We were first establised in 1974 and have been working with the community for over 40 years! We are a thriving community hub, which provides services to the community from 0 to 100; ensuring that every individual has someone to turn to, whether it's a 3 year old toddler to a young person seeking guidance or a pensioner needing help with their weekly shop. You can also find out more about us in our ABOUT US page
HRH works hard to meet the needs of the community, to ensure that those that need help receive it.
Our efforts to complete our new community building is now in its final phase. We are pleased to report that we were able to bridge the funding gap by appealing to our local community, new funders and successfully applying for a Social Investment Loan from CAF Bank and others. The final phase of construction started in August 2019 and was due to be complete in Nov/Dec 2019. Unfortunately, due to delays in getting the building signed off by Building control, we now expect the building to be complete by summer 2021.
Once we take possession of the building, we will be able to start delivering the much-needed services. The total cost of the building is estimated to be over £3.2m.
As you can see from the photos, construction of the building is complete, subject to the building control matter and any further works that may be required.
I will not list all the groups and activities that are going to move into the new building. You can find them on our website, all patiently waiting to occupy the space that has been designed for them.
The project has taken a numbers of years to get to where we are; we are all so excited and look forward to completing this final phase. We cannot wait to move in and start serving you.
Although we have raised all the funds to complete the construction of the building, there is always a need for additional equipment, or we may be asked to undertake some further works, by Building Control. Please do continue to donate to our new building fund; every penny raised will be put to good use. If not for the new building, it could be to assist us re-start our work, as a result after the pandemic. You can donate to our new building fund through our fundraising page on Virgin Money Giving:
Our new centre will provide space for a range of activities for children and young people in order to help them increase their skills, encourage aspiration and help them attain their full potential.
