Hampstead Community Centre

& Community Market

is an independent charitable organisation run by an elected board of trustees.

Founded in 1976; the building started life as a coach house and then a garage after which it

was renovated by a group of local people after it fell into disrepair.


The Centre aims to make the following overall and specific

differences to the lives of residents living in the area:


- Reduce isolation and promote stimulating activity for older people

-  Improve peoples access to safe, stimulating care for children aged 5-12

-  Improve peoples access to advice, information, support, counselling and advocacy

-  Improve peoples access to meeting space for voluntary and community groups

-  Promote & support healthy living, including the provision of a produce market for the locality

-  Increase creative play opportunities for children under 5 and support to their parents/carers


These differences have been achieved by the provision of activities and services that include:


- Over 60s club & events & Christmas Day Lunch (inc. transport) for older people on their own

-  Under 5s: - 4 morning session parent/carer with toddler groups

-  After School Club Playcentre (5-12's) - Term-Time Monday - Friday

-  Playschemes (5-12's): Summer, Easter & half-terms in May/June, October & February

-  Outdoor Community Provisions market

-  Community Counselling Sessions

-  Community support groups, local leisure groups, language classes, art classes, and special events


Activities & services have continued to function due to support from Camden Council & Charitable Trusts.
