Get to know us.
We exist to work together with the local community to enable North Kensington to thrive. We dedicate ourselves to the wellbeing of this vibrant community. We work with over 60 member organisations ranging from community groups and residents’ associations to schools and sports clubs, as well as other local groups and people.
Our vision is sustainable wellbeing in North Kensington in three ways: Social Wellbeing, Environmental Wellbeing and Economic Wellbeing.
At Westway we have four values that guide us in what we are, how we do things and where we want to be.

Trees 4 Grenfell
Just Solutions 123… consulted with Grenfell survivors and community and have their approval to plant trees and develop small memorial gardens that will be tranquil places of remembrance and reflection around the location of the Grenfell Tower. Trees and green spaces will serve to encourage and assist the process of healing. They will stand as symbolic representations of the love and community spirit witnessed on the night of the tragedy and observed throughout the area and much further afield, ever since. North Kensington houses one of the largest motorways in central London, the A40 Westway, which sweeps through the borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Planting trees and creating green spaces will increase the biodiversity of the area and improve air quality and remove toxins from soil. New trees will add colour and variety to the bleak urban landscape. The community gardens and their care will encourage outdoor family orientated activities and instill the importance of nurturing nature so nature nurtures our planet. insert quote from Westway trustees insert quote from Westway trustees insert quote from Westway trustees insert quote from Westway trustees insert quote from Westway trustees Click here for information on upcoming events hosted by Trees for Grenfell Projects: Just Solutions 123… Focus is Health & Wellbeing: Talk Shops; Fun Canal Walk; Community Kitchen Gardening - this is the space we Garden near the Sports centre; Trees4Grenfell - Under the Westway Hope Gardens and Ecology Centre - Maxilla, W10 6SW ...Find out more
