The Abbey Community Association is a charity established in 1948, which supports the communities of south Westminster improve their quality of life. Our focus is the households with priority needs living in the wards of Churchill, Tachbrook, Vincent Square, Warwick and St James. The south of Westminster is characterised by households living in concentrated areas of acute deprivation in close proximity to some of the wealthiest households in the UK. This diversity presents unique challenges for our communities, expressed in perceptions of low community cohesion and access to affordable food, services and housing. We work in partnership with organisations that share our ethics, values and passion for social justice to promote improved health and wellbeing for local vulnerable residents and families; and to increase inter-community and generational understanding and connections.
The charity has been based in and manages the Abbey Centre since 1991, located in the heart of historic Westminster, as a vibrant community hub buzzing with diverse activities and services. The Centre’s five storey building is managed as a social enterprise, providing conference and training venues to corporate clients with a friendly in house café and catering service to generate funds to support our charitable work.
The charity has a unique role in south Westminster as a comprehensive service provider and community facilitator. There is no comparable local organisation providing such a diverse range of services in the area. We support local community action through provision of facilities, development and promotion of activities, sharing of information and provision of networking opportunities to local groups and organisations.
