Board of Governors

Want to help drive the recovery of the North Kensington Community?

The Curve Community Centre was set up following the Grenfell Tower tragedy. It is here to support the community that has been affected, and to deliver the services the community needs and wants.

The Curve is looking for passionate people who have the ideas, skills and experience to drive the future of the Curve so that it can provide a positive legacy for the North Kensington community.

Governors will meet once a month to ensure the Curve is accountable to the views of residents and is delivering engaging, quality services.

We are setting up a Board of Governors, made up of trusted community representatives, to oversee the centre. An Interim Board has been set up initially to establish the permanent Board of Governors. The interim board includes local faith and community leaders. An open and public selection process will then be held to form the permanent board.The Curve Team will be jointly accountable to the Board of Governors and to the Council. The role of the Board of Governors will be to hold the Curve team to account on delivering for the community, in line with its priorities.

These priorities will be set by a Residents’ Steering Group, which the Curve is in the process of establishing. This group will set the priorities for The Curve by telling them what should be on offer.

The Curve Board of Governors will ensure that the community leads what the Curve delivers. The interim Governors are

  • Abderrahman Elguerbouzi
  • Abdurahman Sayed
  • Fatai (‘Abdul’) Towolawi
  • Fatima Elguenuni (Chair)
  • Revd Dr Michael Long

At the first meeting of the Board on Thursday 26 January, Fatima Elguenuni was elected Chair. Fatima works for the NHS and is the mother of a former Grenfell Tower resident. She brings experience of chairing three other boards.
