Help Refurbish CYTO: Join the Steering Group, Donate, and More...

About this project

Having been awarded a thirty-year lease via a community asset transfer, CYTO are on route towards a £2.2m refurbishment of our premises on Oakley Rd, South Norwood. This venue has served as our home since 1984 and much of it hasn't seen refurbishment since then. We are determined to save this valuable community asset so it can continue to serve Croydon and its people.
