Heartstart Training

The heart of Whitley

Whitley Community Development Association was established in 2013 to work with local people for local people. Originally funded by Local Trust we are now working to be a self-sustainable organisation, that supports and encourages local people to get involved, to make the changes and improvements they want.

"My 20 year old son said he wanted Whitley to be a better place to raise his kids one day. He want's to make a difference"

As a result of our working with the community from our base at the Community Cafe, we have earned the title "the beating heart of Whitley".

Our

WCDA is a registered charity managed by a board of volunteer Trustees.  They are all either living or working locally in Whitley. We feel it is essential that we have direct links with the people in the community and are a part of the community.

The day to day work is carried out by a number of passionate and committed staff who also work and live in Whitley.

We are the beating heart of Whitley.

Our

WCDA aspires to provide community led spaces across Whitley. Currently, we operate from South Reading Community Hub and The Whitley Advice Shop.  We are also the catalyst and facilitator for various partnerships who provide community engagement and activity within Whitley.
