Our Power Hub (OPH) Community Interest Company (CIC) was established in 2019 and has its offices in the heart of North Kensington. Our Power Hub was created to support the local community following the tragic Grenfell Tower Fire on the 14th June 2017. The team worked closely with the Grenfell Bereaved, Survivors and Residents (BSRs), providing free access to events, activities, community enrichment and ad-hoc services as identified and raised by community members.
From the 14th June 2017, before Our Power Hub was set-up, many individual volunteers came together with members of the community and people from around the country to support the BSRs. As the months passed, Bobby Ross and Nadia Aasili founded Our Power Hub to formalise the range of support offered and to ensure OPH were in a position to continue supporting BSRs, as well as residents in the North and the South of the Borough.
We are a listening, pro-active, peer-led CIC, which involves those we support in our decision making process, continuously collaborating with them to develop individual plans as well as group activities, which will help them achieve their desired outcome.
Over time, they have built strong and trusted relationships with community members and groups by meeting the needs of the BSRs and residents not only from Kensington but also other parts of London.
