Community Living Rooms
Redbridge Council in partnership with a range of organisations in the borough has established a network of 17 Community Living Rooms, which are warm and welcoming places for residents to use. You are invited to come to any of the places listed below during their opening times.
The list of places will evolve as more organisations join the network. Each is different and their offer will be different – some will have activities, some will offer hot drinks, some will be quiet spaces. Each will develop their own character and no doubt you will find one that suits you.
The Redbridge Libraries offer a wide range of activities and are at 11 locations across the borough. They have activities for adults, children and families. Everything from chess clubs and book clubs through to knit’n’natter sessions and family storytime and coding for kids.
As more partners come on board with Redbridge Council, we will be able to increase the range of Community Living Rooms, so please keep an eye on this page to see how the network is growing and what is available near you.
