Queen’s Crescent Community Association (QCCA) builds community in one of London's most deprived areas. Our older people are in the bottom 3% for deprivation across England and our young people are in the bottom 6% according to the Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG)’s most recent Indices of Social Deprivation.
We believe passionately in providing free and affordable services for all, as a way of fostering inclusivity and tolerance.
Outreach is one of the cornerstones of this work.
We build relationships with the entire community, from the chief executive of Camden Council to the parents of children caught up in gang crime. We have excellent relationships with referral partners across Camden.
We hold public meetings at times of crisis bringing together community and faith leaders.
Over the last year, we have:
60 Households supported via foodbank
507 healthy families users
286 unique users of the older people service, 27 housing grants secured
128 AQA qualifications made via Youth Services
