Please note: Following government advice to avoid all non-essential contact, all activities at our community centres are now cancelled until the 31st May 2020
 

Our community centres are a great place to meet new people and try new things.

We run activities and events from our community centres, ranging from classes and bingo sessions to parties and meetings. With locations across London, Kent and Sussex, you'll find plenty to do throughout the year.

Our community centres are open to everyone, not just residents. Many of our venues are available for hire and can also be used as a base for running community projects.

To find out more information please contact our team on rachel.pearson@optivo.org.uk or asha.ahmed@optivo.org.uk

Please note: some of our community centres are managed by resident volunteers so we may not be able to respond to your enquiry immediately but will aim to reply within two to three days.
