The WATCH Charity, and Community Centre is a modern, purpose-built, fully accessible community centre located in the heart of Hillfields Coventry.
WATCH Charity was established in April 1998, after the devoted work of a small group of revolutionary local people. The centre contains excellent facilities which were extended and renovated in 2001 creating space for the local community, children and young people and groups to meet and take part in a range of activities.
The centre is open to the general public, and offers free internet, and computer use to residents, and aims to support people facing disadvantage and deprivation. We aim to support individuals and BAME groups who are culturally under-represented, and persons who live in socially or linguistically isolated communities.
The centre provides room hire at competitive rates to Organisations seeking to engage with residents and deliver their projects and services in Hillfields.
Our acclaimed youth project provides children, and young people with the opportunity to take part in a range of afterschool sessions in a safe, fun, environment. Activities include; board games, table football, Art & crafts, and introduction to radio training through our community radio project, https://www.hillzfm.co.uk
