The Curve Board of Governors ensure The Curve delivers on the priorities of the community, and that their voice is central to what happens in the centre. There are six members who sit on the board who were appointed in spring 2018.
The Curve Team are equally accountable to the Board of Governors and to the Council.
If you would like to speak to one of the governors, or if you have any questions, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and your email will be forwarded on to the Governors.
Board of Governors meetings are held on the First Floor of The Curve Community Centre, 10 Bard Road, W10 6TP. They are not open to the public.

Meet The Curve Community Centre Board of Governors
“I grew up on the Lancaster West Estate and I am a proud member of the North Kensington community. I began my career in North Kensington and following 30 years of experience in Social Work, Health, Community Development and Housing, I have a solid local background and the professional knowledge and skills around supporting groups and individuals in the holistic model.”
“I’m a local mother of two and Editorial Director at Ink – the world’s leading travel media company. I’ve made this part of London my family home because I truly believe we have a uniquely wonderful community here. That’s why I’m committed to ensuring The Curve represents the communities’ voice and continues to create a welcoming, safe and inclusive environment.”
“I am part of the diverse, rich cultural heritage that makes up the North Kensington we know and love. I am looking forward to helping build a strong community bond within our education system that identifies, includes and promotes the talents and diversity of our young scholars. My speciality in youth issues and education, along with my skills and knowledge of our community will be at the forefront of my work at this critical time for our community.”
“I have been living in the borough all my life, and have grown up knowing the community. I have been actively working with the Curve from day one, and have met many great people and will continue to do so. I also had the pleasure of being with the Interim Board of Governors. I hope to continue to make the curve a better place for people to feel safe and happy.”
