Crowd Funding Appeal

Fund Raising Campaign with Ealing Centre of Independent Living and OPEN Ealing

We aim to create a vibrant community cultural quarter in West Ealing that not only benefits the community physically and emotionally but provides employment and promotes independent living. It will be a community asset to be enjoyed by everyone and play a key role in the local economy.


We want to take over the empty shop that used to be Hawasana cafe in West Ealing and create an amazing diverse retail and artistic space. The Wellbeing Cultural Quarter will offer a diverse range of community engagement art activities accessible to all promoting inclusion, mental and physical wellbeing and independent living within the area. It will be a place where people can meet old friends, make new ones and express themselves. Well be able to learn about the areas diverse culture through exhibitions, classes and events all curated by the community for the community.


We have less than 70 days to create a vibrant community cultural quarter and we need YOUR help!


The shop front will be a retail unit stocking and selling affordable mobility equipment that have been refurbished on site by our team of Apprentices under the watchful and skilled eye of a qualified mobility engineer. The shop will be the first of its kind in the area and do a lot to make West Ealing accessible to all.

That’s not all, you’ll be able to see art from local artists on the walls and join in one of the art courses from writing to drama and spoken word; drawing to painting.


As you move through the space you come to the studios where we’ll hold the art classes and other activities and the workshop where customers mobility equipment can be refurbished or up cycled and blinged.
