Kennington Park Community Centre Community Benefit Society

The Kennington Park Community Centre Community Benefit Society, which registered with the Financial Conduct Authority as a charity in 2018, was set up to run the Centre on OUR behalf. We have a Lease with Hyde which means that we are responsible for bookings and the day-to-day running of the Centre, while Hyde as our landlord continues to be responsible for major repairs and maintenance.

We are currently working with Hyde to carry out a major refurbishment of the Centre, which will include improved lighting, audio/visual equipment, security, kitchen, toilet and storage facilities.

Come and get involved! If you would like to become a member of the CBS, please email us a completed copy of the application form.

We hold an Annual General Meeting where, as a member, you elect the Board of Trustees and can stand to become a Trustee yourself. Our current Board comprises a mixture of Kennington Park Estate residents (both tenants and leaseholders), key regular user group leaders, one of our local councillors and several local supporters, bringing a range of skills and experiences to the important business of running the Centre.
