The Abbey Community Association is a charity established in 1948, which supports the communities of south Westminster to 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.
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.
