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.

ABOUT PWA, Slough

In the 2011 Census, the Pakistani community at 24,869 was the largest ethnic minority group in Slough representing 17.74% of the population. A community that has faced many hardships across almost five generations in Slough.It is well documented that a community’s identity is multifaceted. The Pakistani community that has made Slough its home has played an important role in the social, economic, environmental and political life of Slough’s rich fabric. As an organisation, PWA has endured, developed and grown despite reduced funding opportunities and the impact of austerity on both it’s community and as an organisation. The long term objectives of PWA are to:

  • Bring people together and build strong relationships across all communities.
  • Improve the spaces and places that matter to communities.
  • Enable more people to fulfil their potential by working to address issues at the earliest possible stage.
  • Developing outreach to Slough’s diverse communities to develop cohesion and understanding.

Chairman 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. Our priority groups:
  • Young people – to develop their self esteem and confidence, education opportunities, peer support, mental health and addiction help and support.
  • Women – social inclusion, health advice, economic activity, women empowerment, education opportunities.
  • Elderly – eradicating loneliness, social inclusion, improving self esteem, health advice, lunch clubs.
