We are a registered charity and aim to improve the quality of life for those living and working in the central London neighbourhood of Fitzrovia. We do this by running a number of community projects to provide public benefit.
We have been based at the Fitzrovia Neighbourhood Centre (a small 18th century building with a Victorian shop front) on the corner of Tottenham Street and Goodge Place since 1975.
From here we provide a free housing, welfare and debt advice service, support older people, deliver creative arts, culture, recreation, health and social activities, and community development and social integration for the Bangladeshi community.
We publish Fitzrovia News a free neighbourhood newspaper, promote citizenship and democracy, and encourage volunteering. We have an archive of community newspapers and organise the Fitzrovia Festival.
We respond to planning and licensing applications to City of Westminster and London Borough of Camden, and consultations by the Mayor of London and Greater London Authority. We campaign for more affordable housing and public open space, and work with other community groups in Fitzrovia to improve the built and natural environment.
The organisation was founded in 1975 when we acquired an urban aid grant and our current premises. We became a registered charity in 2004.
