Stockwell Centre update

Your local Labour team have been fighting hard to save services at the well-used Stockwell Centre just behind the tube station.


The community centre provides help with employment advice, computer training, healthy living activities, sports / dance groups, support for refugees as well as a space for local residents, the police and community groups to meet. Councillors also hold a regular surgery to help people with any problems they have.

Unfortunately, Hyde (the housing association who runs it) plan to lease the centre to another group because of cuts to funding from the Tory Government. Another centre Hyde run in Kennington may be demolished.


Labour has been fighting these plans hard and Cllr Alex Bigham recently presented a petition of over 2,000 residents opposing the plans and attended a protest organised by the Studley Estate Residents’ Association. The campaign has been backed by Joanna Lumley, author Will Self and reggae pioneer Don Letts.

Hyde have been pressured into thinking again, and are now working with residents and councillors to protect services and ensure the cost of using the centre doesn’t increase above inflation. Hyde have promised that charitable and community groups will still be able to use the centre at a discounted rate while the local residents’ association can hold their meetings there for free.

Council and resident representativess will be involved in the panel selecting the new organisation leasing the centre and we want to see a local management committee involving residents and councillors.


Councillor Alex Bigham said: “This is an incredibly well used community centre, in an area that has the 5th highest child poverty in London. It really is crucial that it stays open and services are protected.”
