About NW5

Who we are

The NW5 Project is a small, independent, community-run charity. We were established in 1973 following a campaign from residents concerned about a lack of facilities for young people on the Peckwater Estate, Islip Street, Kentish Town.

We aim to provide facilities and services for young people of all ages 0-25 and their families, in and around the Kentish Town area. We seek to foster community cohesion throughout our work, and the children who attend our services come from over twenty different nationalities and ethnic backgrounds
