Big Lottery funding helps secure future of Shaftesbury Hall in Herbert Road

North London Samaritans has been given a grant of £545,0000 to rebuild Shaftesbury Hall to provide a centre for Samaritans’ volunteers and fund an amazing new public facility for local people.

The charity now needs to look to local businesses and individuals to raise £15,000 in the next 6 months to complete the project. If all goes to plan, NLS aim to start building work in the autumn of 2017 and complete it by mid-2018.

We also in the process of asking for donations of £95,000 from Charitable Funds and Trusts as the total cost of rebuilding will be over £800,000. 

This grant will ultimately benefit around 360 people per week by working with a large number of local organisations. Over 30 local people and groups have already expressed a keen interest in using the space  

Local business, community groups and others interested in fundraising or sponsorship opportunities for the North London Samaritans Shaftesbury Hall appeal should contact North London Samaritans on 020 8368 6789 or by emailing
