North Kensington

In North Kensington you will find our Second Half Centre, which offers a huge variety of activities, including creative and performing arts, dance, health and fitness, plus IT sessions.  

Also in North Kensington we run an Employment Support Centre at The Positive Age Centre, where our New Futures 50 Plus employment project is based. 

Other activity venues in this area include the Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre, Pepper Pot, Westway Sports and Fitness Centre, the Venture Centre and rooms in Sheltered Housing Schemes.

North Kensington is very close to our hearts – it’s where Open Age first started in 1993, and our main offices are located in the St Charles Centre for Health & Wellbeing near Ladbroke Grove. 

Visit us or get in touch

We’re open 9am ­- 5pm, Monday to Friday. You’re welcome to drop by and pick up one of our programmes (which you can also open to print by clicking on the links on this site). 

You can find out more about our other initiatives and projects like ‘Time for Me’ (for carers), telephone activity groups (for the housebound), ‘Steady & Stable’ (for people prone to falling), ‘Healthy Lungs’ (for people with breathing difficulties), ‘Link-Up’ (one-to-one support for activities) and much more.

You can also call us and one of our friendly volunteer receptionists will answer your questions or refer you to a member of staff who can help.

Leaving a Gift in Your Will

Open Age is raising awareness of leaving a gift to charity in your will. Legacies are an important way to support Open Age, as they help us to plan so that we can be there in the future for older people who need us. As well as providing for your family, friends and other loved ones in your will, please do consider the possibility of leaving a gift to Open Age.



For further information, please download a brochure here or contact Open Age on 020 8962 4141, or email
