The Westend Community Centre

A place to meet, to learn
to eat and then return....

January 2022

Covid Update

Happy New Year!!

Due to the rising numbers of Covid 19 infections we have reluctantly made the decision to temporary close our Centre. 

We are moving to our remote delivery model.  Staff are still available for support.  Our WhatsApp groups are operating.

West End Warriors: An informal group where we can keep in touch, find someone to talk to.

History Buffs: A group for people interested in chatting about local history.  A general Quiz every Tuesday at 7pm

Friends of the Allotment: Keeping you up to date with our community allotment and sharing useful information hints and tips.

If you would like support with job search or online learning, please get in touch we can design individual remote support dependent on your needs.

We will continue to deliver our Lunch Club on Wheels during this time.

We will review this plan at the end of January.

For further information please contact:

Christine 078543240809 (Monday – Friday 9am – 4pm)

Kathryn 07592003595 (Tuesday – Thursday 9am – 3pm)

Stay safe.

Heading 1



West End Centre Bradford


The West End Centre is a purpose built modern community centre based within St Oswald’s Church.

The Centre is financially independent and distinct from it. The Centre serves all sections of the local community and welcomes people of different faiths, cultures and ability levels.

It is a Registered Charity and Company Ltd by Guarantee. We are based in Little Horton, Bradford. The Centre opened in May 2005.

It has developed provision in line with the needs and wants of the local community.


We have a range of groups and activities delivered in the heart of the community.

West End Centre Bradford


We develop the capacity and skills of the members of the socially and economically disadvantaged local community of Little Horton and the City of Bradford in such a way that they are better able to identify, and help meet their needs and participate more fully in society.


We promote social 'inclusion' by preventing people from becoming socially excluded, relieving the needs of those people who are socially excluded and helping them to integrate into society. This benefits the community, without distinction of sex, sexual orientation, race or of political, religious opinions.

West End Centre Bradford


Volunteers are central to the development and success of the West End Centre. They help to decide what activities are of interest to the community. They have done this by taking part in community consultations and evaluating the groups and activates in the centre.

They help to deliver the groups and activities by setting up and clearing away equipment, helping to prepare food, supporting learners and even cleaning and decorating the centre. 


We also provide placements for students seeking to gain practical experience in a community setting. This enables you to explore how theory and practice fit together.  We work closely with Bradford College, and offer placements to a range of students from level 1 to undergraduates and post graduate students.

The West End Centre

A poem by John Heaton

Come join the West End Centre

You will have lots of fun

I will tell you from the heart

For me, its the only one.

Come join our walking group

We are a happy bunch

And if you want

You can even stay for lunch!

So come and give us a try

It will make you give a cheer

And if you have something to offer

You can become a volunteer!
