Welcome to The Westway Trust, a registered charity and one of the first social enterprises in the UK. We were formed out of local protest in 1971, when the A40 Westway Flyover was built leaving 23 acres of derelict land. We manage and regenerate this land on behalf of the local community.
We are now an emblem of urban regeneration; transforming the Westway into a safe, attractive environment for everyone to enjoy and benefit from. As a self-sustaining not-for-profit organisation, everything we earn from the land is put straight back into it.
We offer education and training programmes and run two popular sports and fitness facilities, as well as health and fitness services. We promote arts and culture, host entertainment and events, and provide space and development opportunities to individuals, businesses, enterprise, artists and charities. In all that we do, our focus is on creating opportunity and access for those most in need.
Working alongside the public and voluntary sectors, we are improving the social and economic well-being of our North Kensington community. Through smart use of our land and resources, we intend to realise the full potential of this community, today and tomorrow.
