A vibrant community and conference centre in Westminster
The Abbey Community Association Limited is a charity established in 1948 to support the communities of south Westminster in central London to improve their quality of life.
We work in partnership with organisations that share our ethics, values and passion for social justice to promote improved health and wellbeing for vulnerable local residents and families, and to increase inter-community and generational understanding and connections.
Located in the heart of historic Westminster, the charity has been based in the Abbey Centre since 1991, managing it as a vibrant community hub buzzing with a diverse range of activities and services to address local community needs.
The centre’s five-storey building was converted from a former Victorian swimming baths and is now managed as a social enterprise, providing conference and meeting rooms for hire, with a friendly in-house cafe and catering service to generate funds to support our charitable work.
The charity has a unique role in south Westminster as a comprehensive service provider and community facilitator. There is no comparable local organisation providing such a diverse range of services in the area.
We support local community action through provision of facilities, development and promotion of activities, and sharing of information and provision of networking opportunities to local groups and organisations.
Healthy and cohesive communities in south Westminster.
