The original vision in 1979 for the South London community was to have a local community centre that was resident-driven and resident-supported providing local resources for preschoolers, youth, families, seniors and adults. By 1986 the Community Council of White Oaks, a neighbourhood association, raised funds to build an amazing centre as a neighbourhood resource for the residents of South London. As the popularity of a community space where residents could lead the overall direction of the resources that would best meet their needs of the community continued to grow we found the reach of the centre geographically grew as well.
"They look after many individual and families in south london who need “ a hand up “ in so many aspects of their lives ."
