London’s largest centre for charities has reopened after a £2million refurbishment.

Resource for London, in Holloway Road, Holloway, has just been revamped and now boasts top-class offices, meeting rooms, exhibition spaces and conference facilities.

Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour MP for Islington North, who was among the 100 people who attended the opening ceremony, said: “Resource for London provides comfortable and affordable surroundings in which people can hold conferences, set up their offices or just share ideas – ideas that can help to tackle some of the biggest problems facing our communities.

“It is a vital resource for London’s voluntary sector and I hope charities and community groups across London use it.”

The centre was refurbished by the award-winning architectural practice Bennetts Associates, which is based in Rawstorne Place, Finsbury.

Any proceeds raised by the centre, which is owned by the charity Trust for London, will go to groups tackling poverty and inequality in the capital.
