The story behind our story


The community Hub is a welcoming space for people of all ages, genders and ethnicities to come together, stay safe and active and feel included and valued.

The Community Hub (former Asian Centre) is a project managed by The Council of Asian People (Haringey), a registered charity (1001331) set up in 1990. We run activities and support services that improve people’s health and wellbeing, and have an open door drop-in for anyone who needs an advice. We also support other organisations and activities through opportunities to hire space at affordable prices and our community transport initiative.

Anyone is welcome to become a member, giving you access to cheaper classes and trips, news about events and activities going on at the Hub, and helping us to keep providing community services.


Our vision

Local people can lead healthier, happier and better connected lives.
