We are located close to Brixton (Network Rail and Victoria Underground stations) and within 15 minutes' walking distance of Stockwell Underground (Victoria and Northern lines). Bus routes 3, 35, 45, 59, 109, 118, 133, 159, 250, 333, 345, 355, 432, P4, P5 have stops nearby.

The office is at Martindale House, 155a Stockwell Park Road. If approaching from Brixton tube station use the signposted pathway from Stockwell Park Walk, on the north side of the one-way system. Follow the path through the Estate until you come out opposite Martindale House and Victoria Cottages.

Alternatively you can reach the almshouses via Rumsey Road, which runs off Stockwell Road, by turning right into Stockwell Park Road (there is a sign to the Almshouses on the wall). The Friendly Almshouses can then be found on the left hand side of the road, at Nos 155-167.
