What is the Saint Pancras Community Association?
St Pancras Community Association (SPCA) is a local charity that promotes community activity in London’s busy St Pancras and Somers Town area. We bring local community groups together and coordinate shared activities, sports facilities and premises that can be used for meeting rooms and offices. We run activities ranging from childcare for children to soup groups and singing for people over 60. Facilities can be hired commercially or at well below commercial rates for activities that serve the local community. We welcome new activities so if you have a project in mind get in touch!
Our current priorities are:
- Reducing the impact of isolation among people over 60.
- Promoting healthy life styles by encouraging people to take regular exercise, especially people who wouldn’t otherwise be physically active.
- Supporting children and families, by promoting good quality parenting, education and childcare.
- Creating a sense of local ownership, by giving people more say in what is happening in their community.
Sports, Learning, Meeting and Leisure Facilities
In June 2016, we moved into brand new facilities at 67 Plender Street, meaning that we can now offer top quality rooms suitable for meetings, training sessions, parties and exercise. We also offer outdoor areas that are marked out for netball, tennis, table tennis and five a side football. Anybody can book these facilities and prices are well below commercial rates for local charities and for activities that help us meet our current priorities. Contact us on 0207 380 1501 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Legal and Financial Status
SPCA is not part of the Council but is an independent charity that attracts income from grants, commercial activity and contracts to deliver community services such as a “Stay and Play” service for children.
We have a small team of paid staff but are governed by an elected group of trustees, who give their own time free of charge.
SPCA’s new building is looking excellent! Halls, rooms, gardens and sports pitches are for hire, give us a call on 020 7380 1501 or email email@example.com for more information and details.
