Dorothy Parkes Centre

Church Road, Smethwick B67 6EH, UK

The Dorothy Parkes Centre is a community centre based in Smethwick, a diverse and deprived area in the Metropolitan Borough of Sandwell in the West Midlands. Our Centre opened in 2000 and was created out of the ‘Old Church’ parish hall.

Our Centre aims to be a place of welcome and opportunity to the local and wider community and is fully accessible, open seven days a week. There are a variety of groups, classes, and activities available at our Centre which all aim to help tackle local issues such as physical and mental health, obesity, social isolation, low educational attainment, poverty and unemployment.

Our Centre hosts community events, fundraising events, and private functions. We distribute food vouchers, host police, fire & council surgeries & promote other events and programmes happening throughout the borough.
