Community Projects

One of our main purposes is to ensure that Longfield Hall benefits and meets the needs of our local community. In order to do this we carried out a large public consultation Longfield Listens in 2015. This helped us to understand what kind of activities our local residents want. It has fed into key aims:

  • to provide more opportunities for young people
  • to provide activities for people aged 55+
  • to provide more health and wellbeing classes
  • to provide more social events

Longfield Hall Trust develops and delivers projects to bring our local community together. In recent years we have had funding from Awards for All, Active Lambeth Sports Fund and Lambeth and Southwark Wellbeing Fund.
