Cambridge House is a place where local people come together to promote positive social change.
For 130 years, Cambridge House has operated from our Grade II listed building at 1 Addington Square in Woolworth (SE5 0HF), which serves as a community hub for Southwark and beyond. We offer work and event spaces for the public as well as subsidised facilities for charities, community groups and social enterprises.
Last year we worked with 18 resident organisations and over 40 community groups to improve the health, wellbeing and independence of Southwark residents. We welcome over 1,500 people through our doors each week and reach over 150,000 people every year.
We reinvest our rental and venue income into our frontline services and to keep our prices low, ensuring that our services are sustainable while supporting our resident organisations.
Cambridge House provides one of the only accessible community spaces and designated Safe Havens in an area of entrenched deprivation.
“…Cambridge House has established itself as the voluntary sector’s community hub in Southwark. And so, it is inconceivable for Community Southwark to be based anywhere else!”
-Gordon McCullough, CEO of Community Southwark
