About us

Highgate Newtown Community Centre (HNCC) is a registered charity that has been serving our local community in Dartmouth Park and Highgate Newtown, as well as our friends and neighbours just across the road in Islington, since 1980. We are governed by an elected board of trustees and regulated by the Charity Commission.

We’re a not-for-profit organisation, whose activities and services are funded through grants, space hire, modest charges for some activities and regular donations from local residents, churches and businesses and our friends in the Trade Union movement.

Our area is one of great wealth but also has some pockets of real poverty and social exclusion – islands of deprivation in a sea of privilege. We want to create sustainable projects, that meet the diverse needs of our community and bring it together, countering the tendency of the growing inequality in our society and neighbourhood.

We work with people of all ages, providing facilities for sports and wellbeing, and opportunities to take part in arts and crafts activities, activities for children and young people and community support projects.
