Now, through a community centre on the estate, WWHC runs recreational and educat-ional activities and events. It is the hub of the community and has several local staff.
Prime Minister David Cameron said: “After 23 years of working to improve life for the local community I am pleased that the charity is receiving recognition for all that it has done. “The co-op was set up to improve conditions on the estate and its achievements are visible to the whole community, from refurbishing existing homes to creating a community centre and installing CCTV.”
