About us

Who we are

High Trees was born of the local community 25 years ago, through collective community action to save the old library based in Tulse Hill, turning it into a Community Development Trust. Today, High Trees has grown significantly and is a well-regarded and trusted community anchor in Lambeth, delivering and leading on a range of integrated services to connect people and communities to strengthen skills and build stronger voices.

Our 5 cornerstone support areas provide integrated services in:

Community Action: We embed Community Organising within the locality to nurture and capacity build individuals and community groups to develop advocacy skills and empower them to take collective community action on issues that affect them, whilst also improving representation in decision making.
Research & Development: Focusing on our partnerships, community based research and sector capacity building support, our Research & Development team work across all services, teams and wider Lambeth to develop collaborative working practices and strengthen the sector.
Employment & Careers: We provide bespoke one to one employment support with experienced advisors who are experts in helping those with multiple barriers find work. 
Community Education & Training: We specialise in delivering basic skills training to provide individuals with the skills they need for work and life, including ESOL, functional skills, ICT and vocational courses.
Children, Young People & Families: Running from the Tulse Hill Adventure Playground and working on the basis of early intervention, we deliver a range of services focused on play, study, coaching and social action aimed at improving the aspirations and well-being of children and young people.

High Trees strives to ensure our services remain firmly rooted in the local community, responsive to and driven by local need and always delivered in the spirit of partnership and collaboration.
