Community facilities

Please note that due to coronavirus measures our community centres are currently closed. However, we are still signposting to local services and supporting as much as we can. Contact the Resident Services team at community.services@newlon.org.uk or 020 7033 4605 to find out more.

Newlon Housing Trust’s community facilities are for both Newlon residents and the local community. These two vibrant, light-filled spaces at Barnsbury in Islington and at Lascar Wharf in Tower Hamlets provide award-winning health and wellbeing activities throughout the year, as well as other community development and engagement programmes.

Our work at these spaces includes providing support services which promote social inclusion, by empowering Newlon and local residents, and giving them the confidence they need to bring change to their lives.

They are also available for hire at competitive prices.

Barnsbury Community Centre

Barnsbury Community Centre is a modern light-filled community resource comprising a large hall, a seminar room, toilets and baby changing facilities, a kitchen, a reception area, as well as a large communal garden.

A number of health and wellbeing activities take place within the centre, including fitness classes, yoga, youth forums and tuition for years 5 and 6. The centre is also home to Tiddley Tots Nursery.

Lascar Wharf

Our Community facility at Lascar Wharf in Tower Hamlets is a bright and clean space based directly beside the picturesque Regent’s Canal. Homework classes currently take place here, along with Global Kids Nursery. This space holds up to 40 people.
