Response Community Projects is a charity occupying a shop in the Old Brompton Road, close to Earl’s Court Road and a company limited by guarantee, run by a volunteer management committee who are its trustees (the Council of Management – COM). It is elected by its members at the Annual General Meeting.
Response’s provision and activities are open to all comers and to all those who live or work in or have some other connection with Earl’s Court.
The Equal Opportunity policy of Response is implemented so that all sections of the community may feel that the Centre is theirs.
To ensure access for everyone, all these activities are either provided free or for a minimal charge.
Nowadays, around 430 individuals a week use Response premises for some reason or other which must make it one of the busiest and best used community resources in the borough and this number is set to increase.
The shop and Internet cafe are open to the public Monday - Friday. The Response Computer & Homework Club operates on weekdays
in the early evenings. The meeting room is in use for local groups later
every evening as well as on Saturdays and Sundays.
The Computer room is available at all times of the day, when not in use for specific computer courses.
Response Community Centre is disable assessable and it has a designated disabled parking bay outside at the front entrance of its premises. The conversion of the premises ensures that disabled people and in particular older people, who cannot negotiate stairs, can use computers and attend courses and meetings held there.
We organise a variety of health and leisure activities for the diverse community of Earl’s Court and surrounding area. In line with the ethos of the Equal Access Project, all of our activities are open to everyone, although some will inevitably tend towards particular client groups. We are always open to suggestions and encourage our users to take an active role in planning and developing new projects.
