What a difference a year makes!

In June 2018 we moved into our new home @472 Harrow Road, W9 3RU in North Westminster. We have had a roller-coaster of a year once we secured the lease after months of negotiation, paperwork and preparation. In the last year: we cleaned, repaired and painted; we sourced new, old and donated furniture; we promoted and marketed and leafleted our new address; we  worked in the garden and more…

NEW for 2019

Following feedback from our service users, this year we added more activities to our service. In addition to the staples, from our new community hub we ran the following activities:

  • Introduction to Yoga
  • Relaxation, Mindfulness and Meditation
  • Sewing Workshops: Beginners, Repairs and Make your own…
  • Monthly well being walks

We were so excited and  pleased to be nominated and shortlisted for the #MyWestminster Community Awards to culminate with our one year anniversary. And truly humbled to win the category: Voluntary Contribution to the Community. Here’s to the coming year! See Westminster’s photo album here:

Drop In

Since August 2016, we have been without a fixed space however, our service continues to deliver a range of services that are important to our local community. This year we have managed to deliver English Classes, Triple P Parenting Programmes and a Community Inform & Empower project in partnership with Westminster Adult Education Service.

We know how important it is to remain as accessible as possible and we’ve been a permanent fixture every Monday, at the Advice Plus sessions at the Beethoven Centre since September 2016. We continue to provide advice with the following:

  • Formal correspondence: explaining and responding to letters and emails
  • Making appointments and telephone calls
  • Completing benefit forms, appeals and health questionnaires
  • Housing applications, placements and queries
  • Liaising and advocating with professional services (eg: schools, social services)
  • and more…
