Other Services

Hilldrop Community Centre is a community space for local people of all ages and backgrounds. We aim to bring people living in the Tufnell Park Ward of Islington together, and help support individuals and families living in isolation or struggling financially. 

Our usual activities and services include an After School Club and school Holiday Play Scheme for children, an under 5's Stay & Play group (term-time only), various activities and several community events over the year.

We have an ongoing gardening project which welcomes volunteers. We can offer space to hire for parties, meetings, or regular activities.  

The Bright Futures service provides advice and referrals for families supporting children aged 5 - 19 yrs. Appointments can be made to see an advisor at Hilldrop on Wednesday afternoons between 2pm and 4pm. 

About the Food Hub

Our Food Hub services include the weekly drop in/Lunch Club. We are sometimes able to offer items of donated food as and when we received them, however we do not have a Food Bank, nor can we provide crisis services. Participants are regularly monitored on their needs and referred to relevant support services if required.
