What we do best .
What we do best is “bring the community together”. Our Activity Day Centre/Luncheon Club Project was assisted with a grant last year from the National Lottery Awards-For-All Fund, which has helped us to expand the Keep Fit Classes with new Salsa Dance Lessons, as part of the community’s Well Being. “Community Awareness”: (1) “Windrush”: If you have suffered a loss because you could not demonstrate your lawful right to live in the UK, you may be able to claim compensation through the “Windrush Compensation Scheme”. This includes even if you could not prove your right to work, claim benefits or access services in the UK. For information on who is eligible and how to claim, visit gov.uk/windrush-compensation
