New Horizons

About Us

Opening Times: 9:30 - 4.00 Monday to Friday.

A consortium of Open Age (lead partner), Age UK Kensington & Chelsea, and The Guinness Trust

runs New Horizons - a modern, lively, convivial multi-activity centre for older people. New Horizons promotes independence and active lifestyles, provides new interests and challenges, supports health and well-being and encourages fun and enjoyment. Now into its ninth year, it has nearly a 1000 members and runs more than 80 regular weekly activities at the centre, as well as at various venues in the community. We charge a nominal fee of between 1.25 and 3.00 per class. We are unable to provide personal care. As such, please bring your carer with you when you attend New Horizons. Your carer will be admitted free of charge to any activity you wish to attend.

We also organise and host special events from complementary therapy workshops, consumer protection, home adaptation, financial advice to cooking courses and wine tasting.

New Horizons is funded by RBKC, NHS Kensington and Chelsea, Adult and Community Learning, and by other charitable trusts. We are also supported by our members, who volunteer their skills and help run the centre through the Members' Forum.

Membership is for all 50+ residents in the borough of Kensington & Chelsea. For non RBKC borough residents who want to join New Horizons, there is a waiting list for membership, which is reviewed quarterly.

We look forward to inquiries from new members - joining is simply a matter of filling out the membership form; there is no fee.

The Membership form is available in the menu on the left of the page.
