About The Centre 

The Redmond Community Centre is the local hub for all residents and visitors to Woodberry Down in Hackney.

The centre was completed and opened by the Mayor of Hackney in February 2012.

The centre is managed by Manor House Development Trust which was formed in 2007. 


Manor House Development Trust is a charitable social enterprise. We deliver and help other organisations to deliver community services which are value for money and create lasting benefits. 


This approach allows the community to lead and determine its own future.
