Impact

Our vision is for a thriving, vibrant and inclusive local community in Holborn.  

We achieve this vision by: 

  • Supporting individuals to learn a new skills 
  • Bringing people together to have fun 
  • Take part in activities together and build new relationships, making our community stronger 

Some insight:

  • In 2018 – 2019 we held 250 free Under’s sessions with 346 families having fun and 5730 attendances
  • In the last six months, 124 older people benefitted from attending activities focused on physical, emotional, social and cognitive well-being
  • 100% of older people supported through Befriending reported reduced isolation and improved well-being
  • Our Digital Media Project saw 18 young people completing Bronze and Silver Arts Awards 
  • In 2019 our volunteers gave over 4,500 hours of their time to Holobrn Community Association 

HCA partners with cultural institutions, organisations and businesses locally and across the London area.   We offer an opportunity to engage with the community in Holborn and make a real difference to the lives of people in that community.

Following the advice set out by government on 16th March we have sadly taken the decision to close the majority of our activities for the moment.   Our care provision for members at Millman Street will continue for now.  Our Befriending Scheme will start linking people by phone
