Sidings Community Centre places a great emphasis on partnership working, and is used by a range of voluntary and community groups, including local Tenants and Residents Associations – providing a place for them to meet, get together and promote their activities.
We offer a neighbourhood-based venue for occasional Camden Council consultation exercises and for Council staff who may need a local space to meet with local partners for a range of reasons.
We provide a base for key local partners to meet – e.g. North Area Youth Partnership – as well as being a hub for recent new initiatives such as the Kitchen Social and Camden Alive Projects. We actively engage in local networks to promote other local group initiatives such as the fantastic FoodCycle free lunches and (more recently food bank) at the nearby St Cuthbert’s Church. We encourage local residents to take an active interest in their community, and participate in important local forums such as the Fortune Green and West Hampstead Neighbourhood Development Forum.
The centre is a founder member of Camden Community Centres Consortium (C4) and is pleased to work as a Strategic Neighbourhood Partner with Camden’s Community Partners Team. We are a member of NCVO which offers support, advice, information, and a wealth of resources to Voluntary Sector organisations such as Sidings Community Centre.
We are an important partner hub for Camden’s Adult and Community Education team which fund our Computer and Digital Learning Centre, and a base for Adult Education Colleges to provide adult learning in the heart of the community. We also regularly liaise with Camden’s Parks & Open Spaces team regarding activity and facilities in the adjoining Maygrove Peace Park.
We are currently looking to further develop opportunities to engage with the business and private sector who may be interested working in partnership with some local charity and community sector organisations, some of whom have already indicated support.
