Our Story

The WTH community space management board was formed in Spring 2022 with the purpose of bringing together representatives from the local community, the building developers and Southwark Council to collectively agree a vision for the community space and to select the best not for profit operator to deliver the vision.

 

Our Board is a unique and diverse collective. We have representation across generations ranging from Gen Z to Baby Boomers.  Between us we have a wealth of local knowledge gained as residents and community leaders who live and/or work in the area.  

In our first year as a Board we have focused on building our vision, setting our mission and agreeing our values.  We have also spent time visiting a wide range of community spaces across London and listening to our local residents and community groups.
