The Association has been running for over 30 years since its opening in October 1988, and has been providing services primarily for the local community in the wider area around Rush Green, Romford and Dagenham areas. We are proud to offer a range of services which include: an early years preschool, a social club, youth projects, health & fitness activities, knitting, craft, flower arranging, bowls, and premises which offer a venue for local groups, guide dog training, consultation events, training and meeting rooms. The centre also works in partnership with local voluntary and Havering-wide organisations to develop more opportunities for the wider community and improve inclusion of local residents.
Our Centre Charter emphasises our key aims to welcome people, foster a climate of respect and act as a broker for the community to provide opportunity, nurture aspiration and offer support to local residents, their friends, and their families. The centre premises are all on one level, easily accessible, disabled friendly and, offer flexible, multi-use space which is used within a busy programme 7 days a week throughout the year. We are situated on Rush Green Road of Rush Green, Romford with easy access from the local bus service (Routes 499 103 175 5 128) and have ample car parking facilities
As of June 2015, the centre will undergo refurbishment which has been funded by the National Lottery - Big Lottery Fund. The centre is always looking for new volunteers to help grow the community centre and empower us to do even more for the local community. All our activities are delivered or coordinated by an extremely dedicated team of staff and volunteers. We welcome input from the community for new ideas and offers of help. For further information about our services, how to offer support and get involved – please look through the website and contact us for further details.
On the 18th July 2015, work began on refurbishing the centre with the help of the National Lottery. We was awarded a grand under "Awards for All" which paid for the redecoration and refurbishment to the Main Hall, Youth Hall, Corridor and Lounge Area in the bar.
