The Curve Community Centre

10 Bard Road, W10 6TP

The Curve Community Centre is here to provide a safe, welcoming space where families and individuals affected by the Grenfell Tower tragedy can access the services they need, no matter what stage of their journey they are at. This includes information and advice on key workers or housing, emotional and wellbeing support and community-based activities.

We have 10 confidential rooms where people can access the support they need, whether for meetings or talking and complimentary therapies. We also have a ground floor comfort area with a kitchen.

We regularly spend time talking to our residents so that we can be better informed and provide them with what they need whether through formal consultation or via our new outreach approach. Much of this is led by our centre managers, three of whom were formally community volunteers supporting the residents since the tragedy

We want the Curve to be a central part of the North Kensington community for as long as it’s needed, helping and supporting the residents to rebuild their lives.

The Curve is open to all, and has services including:

  • Housing
  • Royal Mail
  • Keyworkers and the Care for Grenfell service
  • The Home Office (for passports and immigration)
  • NHS
  • Citizens Advice Bureau
  • The Grenfell Muslim Response Unit (see below)
  • A crèche facility
  • A communal area with a newly installed kitchen for socialising with
    other members of the community
  • A place to meet with volunteers and others to hold key meetings
  • Family and group activities/events
  • Coffee mornings

Community volunteers are present to carry on their crucial work of supporting those affected in every way possible.

Opening Hours: Mon–Fri (10am–8pm), Sat–Sun (11am-6pm)

Parents/carers will need to complete a crèche booking form to register their child and will need to arrive at least 15 minutes before to allow time to settle their child.

Stay and Play

An opportunity for parents and carers to play with their children in a safe stimulating environment. Parents/carers must stay on site with their children at all times.

Grenfell Muslim Response Unit

The Grenfell Muslim Response Unit was set up by independent volunteers in response to the Grenfell tragedy. The project, now hosted by the National Zakat Foundation, is supported by Islamic Relief, Muslim Aid and Aziz Foundation. The team provides 1-1 rep support for families from the tower and surrounding residents and provides a call in service at the Curve. Support provisions include assistance with funerals, bereavement, day to day mobility support, advocacy, respite, education and welfare access.

The Grenfell Muslim Response Unit serves all those affected, regardless of race, religion or background. If you have been affected and need urgent support, please email gmru@nzf.org.uk or visit the team at the curve during Wednesday to Friday between 12-5PM.
