Lloyd Leon Community Centre

Lloyd Leon Community Centre (LLCC), formerly the Brixton Dominoes Club, is a home for The Brixton Domino Club and Brixton Soup Kitchen. We have been supporting LLCC to help it become an exciting, vibrant and creative community-based facility serving the local community. 

The need to design a new more sustainable model for Black and Minoritised led community centres across England was a key recommendation within our report entitled, A Place to Call Home (2015). 

Commissioned by Lambeth Council, Ubele provides a comprehensive package of support and development to the LLCC to identify a clear vision of the future for the centre, supported by the local community based on the needs of the community. It will be developed and delivered in collaborations with local stakeholders including current and future centre groups and their users, members of local Brixton community, other local service providers, faith groups, local authority staff, councillors and local social and for-profit businesses etc.

Our assistance will also offer LLCC wider benefits including an opportunity to become a member of our unique and growing network of Black and Minoritised led community organisations with spaces which we have established. Membership facilitates access to a growing range of creative social leadership programmes, skills development and learning pan London and across Europe which specifically target Black and Minoritised communities. It also offers opportunities for intergenerational collaboration and partnership working and the generation of new ideas as well as creating space for young emerging leaders from Black and Minoritised communities to meet, co-create and grow.

A team of Black-led built environment specialists, including architects and surveyors, have completed a feasibility study for the Lloyd Leon Community Centre building. We're excited to support LLCC in becoming an exciting, vibrant and creative community-based facility that is fit for the 21st century and beyond.
