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.

Time For Me Carers - RBKC WINTER Programme



This year we need to do things differently of course!


This August, join us for a week of the Virtual Open Age Mile! Let’s all get active, get outdoors and make a big difference to our Open Age community! Let’s get together in spirit and we’re hoping that you can join, so that we can have as many Open Age members, along with their friends & families take part between 24th – 30th August!
