The Community Association for West Hampstead (CAWH) is a dynamic local organisation devoted to West Hampstead. We run the West Hampstead Community Centre and provide a range of educational, fun and exciting activities from art, sport and dance classes to social groups.  The aim of the Association is to improve the lives of people living and working in West Hampstead, including children and young people, adults and older people.

CAWH draws on the resources of local residents and organisations, working in partnership to develop voluntary activity in the community. We are committed to building a thriving and vigorous range of services for the community.

We welcome all local residents to take part in our activities.
