Queen's Crescent Community Association
Queen's Crescent Community Association is 20 years old this year.
It has been based in the same building in Ashdown Crescent NW5 all that time; a still point of welcome in a constantly changing neighbourhood.
What started as a drinking club in the 60s for a largely Irish population is now a charity turning over £1 million, working for a culturally mixed community.
It's a major provider of free and subsidised services for people in the Gospel Oak area.
It's a team of 35 staff, many of whom grew up in the neighbourhood.
It's a mediator in an area that's one of the most socially-deprived in the UK.
It's a hub which regularly brings together residents, councillors, police, MPs and other local charities.
But most of all, it's a place that believes in inclusion, co-operation and tolerance.
We look forward to the next 20 years, proudly serving one of the most wonderful and challenging places in the capital.
