Volunteers at 6 Somerleyton Road say they have been locked out of the building.
A number of those who have been working on the community hub say that for a few months they have found they are often unable to access various parts of it, and last week were locked out all together.
Maria Santos, who organises Brixton Come Together, said “Last year Brixton Green invited us to be part of the centre to run activities for the community but the management here hasn’t worked out at all – its been very messy.
“Instead of talking to us volunteers, they just changed the locks. We were given no notice at all. That’s no way to approach a community space.”
Boyd Hill, who runs Watch This Space a project that uses donated materials to create items for the community, said the locks on the tool shed he uses are often changed without his knowledge, as well as the toilets.
“The community deserves somewhere they can actually come and use, and that is not being facilitated right now.”
However, Brixton Green, who runs the project, says there has been a misunderstanding and that no-one should feel they can’t use the space.
Brad Carroll, director of Brixton Green, said: “Brixton is a very big and diverse community and some groups didn’t feel they had access to the building, so this year we are making sure everyone does. No-one is locked out, I have emailed those who think they are to say explain.
“Everyone is welcome to hire the building out, but no one can have exclusive access.”
“We had trouble managing in the past with the different projects in different areas treading on each other’s toes but we’ve worked that out now. So for the next year we have great stuff coming and will be able to continue to really help the community.”
