"At Mytime Active we deliver Healthy Lifestyle programmes to young people, children and families in a range of different settings. The Fitzrovia Centre has a wide range of rooms available for us to be able to deliver different aspects of our programmes.
Our previous use of the Dylan Room allowed for us to conduct one to one meetings with participants who were referred to us and provided us with a confidential meeting space to discuss personal matters with young people and their families. It also provided a comfortable and friendly space which was welcoming to our participants despite the sensitive subject we were covering.
We have also made great use of the Owen Room. This room provides us with a large area to cover lots of the practical aspects of our programmes. We have used to room to run our MEND Teens Programmes which allows for us to have plenty of room to delivery theory subjects to the group with space to seat many but also room to delivery some of the practical elements of the programme such as fitness circuits or assembling healthy treats/meals."

“So happy when I received the news that I was able to host the first mental health event in aid for Time to Talk Day on February 1st 2018 at the Fitzrovia Centre in the Equiano Room. Within a matter of days I had secured a great venue with superb transport links, close to the main shops and easily accessible. The room was a great size and had the space to accommodate the number of attendees that were coming. The staff at the Centre were very helpful and ready to answer any of the questions in the run up to the big day.
Before the event they were very open to promoting the event poster near the entrance to create awareness to its members. On the day I had the opportunity to come early to set up, which gave me the time to ensure the event ran smoothly. Minh was very approachable and catered to the needs when they arose. Definitely recommend using the facilities at the Fitzrovia Centre and look forward to working with them again. Thank you!”

"Owen Room has been an ideal option for our nursery class since September 2014. With its spaciousness, natural light and easy access to the garden and kitchenette, this room is perfect for our activities with children."

"Equiano Room has been a perfect place for our school assemblies and performances since it offers a lot of natural light as well as space for bigger groups of people. Moreover, the open-space layout and elegant interior make this room an ideal place for official meetings and staff trainings."
- Patrik Čuchta, Slovak School
"We use the Fitzrovia Centre on a monthly basis, one Saturday evening each month, for a gathering of spiritual mindfulness and meditation based on the Sufic traditions of North Africa. We normally hire both the Equiano and Owen rooms for this purpose.
We always find the room booking procedure and availability very efficient and user-friendly, and when there have been queries, the centre staff are always quick to respond and helpful. The centre is ideally-located in central London with good public transport facilities and street parking. Ramp access to the building makes access easy for those who require it. At the time of using the rooms there is always a member of staff on hand who is happy to help with any concerns should they arise.
The rooms are comfortable and airy and bathroom facilities are within easy reach and are well-maintained. Kitchen facilities are available and again are in good condition.
We have been very happy with the service provided by the Fitzrovia Centre and we look forward to using the facility regularly in the future."
