The Residents’ Association and the local Peabody housing office in Camberley House have a very close relationship with the West Euston Partnership (WEP) with both Ross Houston (Peabody) and Steve Smith (Chair, Residents Association) serving as Trustees on the WEP Board.
The West Euston Partnership was set up by local people in 1992 to help improve our area and make it a better place to live and work.
The Partnership, which included community, voluntary, private and public sector partners working with few resources, started to improve services in the area. Local people at the time were particularly concerned about the future prospects for young people, a gang culture, including street fighting and racial tension, as well as the lack of recrational facilities and employment opportunities.
Issues such community safety and local facilities, which were central to the welfare of everyone in the area, originally brought local stakeholders together, as well as a strong commitment to make things better.
20 years later the West Euston Partnerhip is still going strong and helps to provide and facilitate many activities and opportunities for local residents. It is often held up as a model of good practice to other community organisations and groups in Camden and in other parts of London.
