The Kensington and Chelsea social club (aka the SUDRG) is a friendly and informal weekend drop-in service for people with drug and alcohol issues. Open every Saturday and Sunday the social club is free to access and offers a warm and welcoming atmosphere where you can come and hang out with likeminded people, get some food, try out a new activity or recuperate with an alternative therapy.


This is our original service, and in December 2015 celebrated its 10th year of existence! Who would have believed we would survive for so long and travel so far! This project is a demonstration of what a service user community can achieve with a little faith, funding and belief!

More than seven hundred people have volunteered here over the past decade, and thousands of people have benefited from accessing this service. We have held parties and photography competitions, developed and written two Impact Evaluations and produced a rock and roll band. We have even held a conference! If you are in the area, why not pop in and say hello . . . .

The full range of services includes:

  • Tea,  coffee and food
  • One-to-one support
  • Assessments and referrals into treatment
  • Information and advice
  • Computer access
  • Music workshop (any level welcome!)
  • Art workshop (also any level welcome!)
  • Yoga
  • Haircuts
  • Shiatsu
  • Needle exchange
  • A very warm welcome from your peers

Location: Acorn Hall, 1 East Row, London, W10 5AR (just off Kensal Road)

Opening hours: Saturday and Sunday, 2-5pm
