Community Hub

MTVH’s community investment arm is called Empowering Futures. MTVH wants everyone to have a home and the chance to live well. For partners in West Hendon this means improving quality of life and opportunity by: living well, building careers and skills, making the most of local provision, creating a sustainable community that is in charge of its assets and encouraging resident voice at all stages.

By working holistically with our residents, Empowering Futures provides a platform for residents to make and implement longer term decisions for themselves and their local community. To facilitate this, the team engages with local communities to gain insight, identify issues and direct resources to impact on our residents and customers.

Resident in West Hendon can access the following services-

  • Support and help with a range of personal issues such as money and debt, mental health, employment or food and fuel poverty.
  • Employment, well- being and skills development programmes through the West Hendon community Hub
  • Signposting to funding for individuals or charities

Matter and Mobilise

 

Barnet Council and MTVH are working together to expand the current Community Hub on Perryfield Way. This will create a larger, more flexible and more accessible space.

We want to make sure that the Hub reflects the aspirations and feedback of West Hendon residents and has better space and facilities. Barnet Council and MTVH have commissioned external experts Matter Architecture and Mobilise, who have held several workshops with residents and other stakeholders. Mobilise are familiar with West Hendon and worked on the Community Strategy in 2018.

Plans are now progressing for the expansion of the West Hendon Community Hub. Proposed designs for the Hub, which will be expanded into the former boiler room space, include a new and more prominent entrance on Damsel Walk, awnings over the entrance areas to provide additional inside/outside space for seating and other uses, more flexible multi-purpose rooms, as well as a lift and new toilet facilities.

The plans include options for long-term ownership of the hub beyond the regeneration and for the day-to-day management of the site. It will also give the hub the best chance of financial sustainability for years to come.

The plans will be shared with the West Hendon Partnership Board in early Spring 2022, with further work to finalise options during the Summer.
