Who We Are

The Harrow African-Caribbean Association (HACAS) is a voluntary community organisation formed in 1991 to bring together the African-Caribbean people, who live in Harrow.

Through our motto 'Unity is Strength' we aim to promote the well-being and interest of our members; provide them with a meeting place; support individuals including the youth and elderly; take up their concerns with statutory bodies such as Local and Central Government in respect of Health, Education, Employment and Training; provide leisure and cultural activities for members and the wider community.
