Changes to Our Services Through Lockdown
As the third national lockdown continues, our main activities remain suspended while we run our Fight C19 emergency services.
We're open between 10am - 2pm each day for our food hub.
Last week (w/c March 1), we provided food parcels to 146 households, mainly delivery. That's over 500 people. A record.
We now have a waiting list for these parcels. Requests are taken through Camden Council's 24 hour Covid food hub. Call 0207 974 4444 and select option 9.
However anyone can take our free Lockdown Lunch, distributed 1pm - 2pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Just come to the centre and take away a hot nutritious meal for you and your family.
We're still warmly welcoming public donations to our food bank, though we've had to restrict opening hours for these to Tuesdays and Fridays only, between 10.30am - 12.30pm.
Other emergency services include:
Advice and guidance. Please email email@example.com for an appointment if you have worries about housing, debt, benefits, health etc. We can hold sessions in a number of community languages including Bengali.
Free Covid Lateral Flow testing, at the Dome, 170 Weedington Road, NW5 4NU. It's a walk-in service that's free, no appointment necessary. For everyone, whether you're a local business, a resident - or a visitor.
In line with revised government advice, we hope to resume some outdoor sport on March 29 and a few limited-capacity indoor activities from April 12. But please check back here, on our news page, or on our social media for more details.
Please continue to stay safe everyone,
The QCCA Team.

Want to know why we did 'Christmas For All'?
Take a couple of minutes and watch this clip from Channel 4. Presenter Cathy Newman and former homelessness Tsar Dame Louise Casey came to see for themselves how we’re serving nearly 800 hot evening meals a week from the centre.
It was filmed outside QCCA on 26th November and features our CEO Foyezur Miah and single mum Claire, talking movingly about their experiences during Covid.
Only our front reception will be open to the public during lockdown, between 11am - 2pm .
We strongly urge you not to come unless you have an appointment.
