Ashford Place (formerly CHC)

Cricklewood New Town Project

Ashford Place's main work with the local community for 2010 has been to lead on a plan to provide a town centre management resource for Cricklewood Broadway because it is where three different boroughs, (Brent, Barnet and Camden) meet, and is therefore at present under the administration of three different Police SNTís and Councils.  The primary aim is to create active partnerships and broad networks to develop a unified and sustainable town centre environment.   This will benefit everyone - the public, private and voluntary sectors, the local residents and visitors.  Ashford Place is developing a steering group involving all the communities to achieve this. This promises interesting negotiations between the boroughs of Brent, Barnet and Camden and Ashford Place want them all to support the Town Centre Management Project.

 

Ashford Place & Faith Groupsí Winter Shelter

Ashford Place's Winter Shelter is now in its third year and has proven a big success. An excellent example of a local charity and faith groups coming together to resolve an unfortunate reality of today's society. The Shelter is open for four months in the year, from December to March. A number of churches take it in turn to offer an evening meal, a bed for the night and volunteers to support single homeless people. These people then come in to Ashford Place in the morning where specialist workers try to find them permanent accommodation as well as trying to resolve the very problems that led them to being homeless in the first place. Lunch is provided as well as access to the many services. Ashford Place is very proud that Brent is leading the way in providing imaginative solutions to homelessness.
