Crystal Palace Community Trust

Launched in 2004, the Crystal Palace Community Trust is a community-based charity that operates for the benefit of those who live and work in the wards that comprise the Crystal Palace area of south London. 

Our vision:
A thriving community where every individual has the opportunity to achieve their potential.

Our mission:
To provide a range of accessible, affordable services and activities which benefit the local Community; support economic and social well-being and contribute to the overall regeneration of local neighbourhoods.

Our values & guiding principles:

  • To remain rooted within the local community
  • To be inclusive, representing the diverse, cultures and age groups in our communities
  • To support small, local initiatives, rather than larger, regional or national ones
  • To develop sustainable initiatives

Like many other geographically-focused charities in the UK, we aim to help empower local people and bring about improvements to their neighbourhood and their quality of life.

Anerley Town Hall is our centre of operations, alongside the Kingswood Community Shop. We host a business centre and a variety of clubs for young and old community members. We also assist the local community by supporting projects and hosting support events within the Hall.

Our Strategic Plan:

We are at an important and exciting time for the Crystal Palace Community Trust. As we continue to provide increasing value to our community, now is the right time to reflect, consolidate and re-affirm our mission, vision and values going forward.

Our Strategic Plan lays out our ambition for the future of the Trust. It is to be used to focus our energy and resources, inspire our community and inform our stakeholders.
