About us

Welcome to the Ackroyd Community Centre

 The Ackroyd Community Centre is vibrant community hub located on Ackroyd Road SE23. It hosts services for the local community across generations living in the Forest Hill, Crofton Park and Honor Oak Park area, in the Borough of Lewisham.

The Ackroyd Centre will be closed from Tuesday 25th December until Wednesday 2nd January 2019.  Except for Church worship sessions on Sundays.   The Acorn play and stay sessions return on Monday 7th January 2019

Merry Xmas from all the team and thanks for your continued support.

The Ackroyd Community Centre needs you!

Would you like to be one of the people who make sure that the Ackroyd Community Centre goes on offering the classes, activities and events that local people enjoy? We need to expand our Board of Trustees to make sure that the Ackroyd goes on being the vital community centre it has been since 1977. We are a registered charity.

Being a Trustee means:

  • taking on the overall responsibility for how the centre is run
  • seeing that user groups have the facilities they need
  • keeping fees affordable but realistic,
  • agreeing on the day-to-day repair and maintenance of the building.

We are also employers and have responsibilities for our staff as well as for those who use the centre.

We meet once a month, usually for about an hour, and we have people on hand with financial and legal expertise to keep us straight. Nobody has to be an expert. We need people who care about their community and about keeping this much-loved centre in good shape for the coming years.

If you are interested, please contact:

Pauline Morrison

Tel: 07932 415476

The centre has daily activities for:

  • children and families (including a day nursery – Young Oaks)
  • older people
  • health and wellbeing activities for all ages

For more information about the activities happening at our centre please visit the individual pages above.

The community centre also hosts local community groups and rooms at the centre can be hired for community or private use.

The centre is managed by a Board of Trustees composed of local residents, supported by paid members of staff.
