Since 1975 Fitzrovia Neighbourhood Association (FNA) has been working with local residents and workers for a better environment, to relieve poverty and foster education and community in a little-known part of Central London north of Oxford Street.
Fitzrovia has always been a home and workplace to people from a diverse range of backgrounds. The FNA fosters good relations and links between them, while helping with the specific needs of each group.
Several important central London amenity groups started at the FNA: Central London Law Centre, Chinese Workers Association, the Bengali Workers Association. Many resident and community groups such as the Charlotte Street Association, Fitzrovia Play Association, Friends of Open Spaces in Fitzrovia have used the facilitates at the Fitzrovia Neighbourhood Centre.
While back in the 1970s the struggle was to keep residential accommodation in Fitzrovia and preserve its historic Georgian and Victorian buildings, now the problem is to fight for those residents and businesses who struggle to stay here in the face of skyrocketing rents. The richly diverse community here is under threat from the relentless development of luxury accommodation for part-time and transient owners; despite huge disparities in wealth the average income is still only £25,000.
Fitzrovia Neighbourhood Association runs an accredited general advice service in English and several Asian languages, arts and health programmes for older people and women, and an acclaimed community newspaper run entirely by volunteers.
This year is Fitzrovia Neighbourhood Association’s 40th anniversary, and we face severe challenges to fund our services and other community work. You can help enormously by giving as generously as you can!
