About Organisation

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
-Play schemes (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 continue to function due to support from Camden Council & Charitable Trusts
