Going Above And Beyond For The Community

The Pakistan Welfare Association (PWA) is one of Slough’s longest established community organisations. It was first associated with and supported by Slough Borough Council as long ago as 1962. PWA has survived as an organisation for over 57 years, despite the many challenges it has faced, this bears testimony to its resilience and durability, more importantly, it reflects the value it has provided at various times for the Pakistani community.

President's Message

I am very pleased to inform you all that the PWA has managed to raise enough funds to complete the purchase of our community centre at 50 Darvills Lane, Chalvey, Slough, for £622,700 on 10th May 2019.This was a very long process, as when we took over we were told that the asking price was £330,000 for a 99 year leasehold, but the Cabinet disagreed due to a lack of proof of funding, and so the asking price increased to over £800,000 for a freehold.In the last three years, PWA has embarked on a community campaign to raise enough funds to purchase the community centre it rented from Slough Borough Council for over 15 years. This secured a permanent home and delivered on savings in rental costs.
