Shepherd’s Bush is open

We are delighted to announce that the Shepherd’s Bush Spear centre is well and truly open, and serving the north of the Hammersmith & Fulham borough including the White City and Edward Woods estates.

Housed in a new facility at St Stephen’s Church on Uxbridge Road, Pete Bacon and Joanne Holmes are pioneering this new ‘satellite’ centre from the Hammersmith base which started in January. Pete commented, “the Shepherds Bush Centre has started really positively, with all of our students expressing a real desire to make changes in their lives. The location is clearly right where we need to be as we are already oversubscribed for our next course and we are so pleased to be able to offer such a key resource in an area of real need.”

Nine young people graduated from the course last Thursday. We have been delighted to double our capacity in Hammersmith & Fulham since demand has outstripped the number of places available for some time.

Now we’re onto the next one! Our North Fulham satellite centre will open in May and then we look forward to our move into the new extension at St Paul’s Hammersmith in the Autumn. It’s going to be a busy year.
