BUILDING a community that’s
BETTER for us ALL
Since its foundation in 1974, the Highbury Roundhouse has grown into a thriving non-profit, community-based organisation.
We provide a safe and welcoming environment that encourages people, particularly those from disadvantaged and disaffected communities, to engage in activities that will enhance their self-esteem and encourage them to participate in community activities and events.
We provide educational and recreational facilities for people of all ages and ethnic backgrounds that live or work in Highbury and the surrounding area. From pre-school to old age, there is something for everyone!
The organisation serves a large cross-section of the community, such as one-parent families, the elderly, people with disabilities and young people from different backgrounds and abilities. We host a Childminders' Group and weekly soft play sessions for young children. For the elderly, we have lunch and social clubs, one of which is for members of the Afro-Caribbean community. We also provide a home for various community groups and organise social and recreational events throughout the year.
Our organisation has particular expertise in working with children, young people and older adults, and focuses on delivering educational and recreational activities that will make a difference in their lives.
In line with the Government Roadmap, we have re-opened most of our services.
We are currently providing services, that are in accordance with the lifting of restrictions.
