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
