BARNET MULTICULTURAL COMMUNITY CENTRE

Social Harmony, Friendship and Progress

Background

Barnet Multicultural Community Centre is a registered charity and was established in 1998 when three local community groups came together to raise funds to refurbish and occupy a disused council building which was previously a sports centre.

The three groups were Barnet African Caribbean Association, Barnet Asian Old Peoples Association, Barnet Somali Community Group. They needed premises from which to base and deliver their services to their increasing client base.

Barnet Multicultural Community Centre is governed by a Board of nine Directors consisting of three members from each of the resident groups.

To this day, the three culturally diverse Groups have been successfully delivering and developing services all from under the same roof and are very well known around the borough.

As well as the groups there are a number of activities at the Centre which are open to the wider community.

With increasing popularity over the years, many other cultural, voluntary and statutory groups have come to benefit from the facilities at the Barnet Multicultural Community Centre affording them access to a wide cross section of the community.
