About us

Who we are

The Northway Community Centre (NCC) is a registered charity 304344 managed by a voluntary board of trustees.

It is a successful vibrant community facility and resource centre which provides a safe and welcoming meeting place.

The centre exists to improve the quality of life within the local community by offering excellent services which provide a range of recreational, cultural and social opportunities.

In addition to this, our centre provides informal advice to visitors on a wide range of matters, signposting them to the appropriate point for further advice.

It is a place where people from a wide range of backgrounds come to socialise, learn and enjoy themselves.

We work in consultation and partnership with the local community as well as voluntary agencies to develop our programme. This assists in enabling us to respond to emerging needs and new initiatives.
