Endlesham Hall hosts a wide range of activities and events and has been at the heart of community life in this part of Balham since 1936. While it is still a popular venue, the building is rapidly ageing.

How we’re helping
We facilitated workshops on housing and governance structures and funded a design and viability study commissioned through an invited community selection process. The architects carried out feasibility work, which helped to secure further funding for a planning application. We have also provided feedback on financial modelling and have encouraged the church community to ask the right questions of prospective partners. Our associate adviser, Andy Redfearn, supported liaison with a Registered Provider, and contributed to the planning application, which was granted in March 2023.
