The New Cross Gate Trust is a local community charity, based in the beautiful Besson Street Community Garden, where we provide a wonderfully wide and varied range of services to our local community of New Cross Gate.
From adult learning courses to under-5 stay and play sessions; from recorder clubs to sewing clubs; calming mindfulness sessions and yoga classes to exciting community events like our annual Halloween Hoot; environmental lessons for schools to gardening clubs for adults. We like to think that there is something here for everyone, and everyone is always welcome.
Based in a neighbourhood that experiences high levels of deprivation, we aim to support families and adults of all ages to learn new skills, improve their health and wellbeing, build social networks, find employment and develop their confidence to achieve their goals.
Our vision is that New Cross Gate should be a fulfilling, healthy and safe place for all of our community to live, work and study.
