Community Development Lead

This is an exciting time for the Venture Centre
Come and join our new Community Development Team!

For 60 years, the Venture Centre has been a part of the lively community of Goldborne Road. We are London’s oldest adventure playground, the UKs first purpose built steel-pan yard and a thriving and vibrant community centre.

In the last year we have expanded our reach by taking over the running of 3 other community venues and playgrounds, at Little Wormwood Scrubs and in Chelsea. We have also seen a huge increase in demand for our services and in particular our food banks and we are about to open Kensington & Chelsea’s fist Community Pantry. To meet this increased need, we are expanding our Community Development Team and now looking for some exceptional people to join our highly motivated, committed and friendly team of people.
