HenPower, a great project!!

Henpower is an amazing initiative where our young people get to engage with the older population of Hackney, often taking the hens out to new places to meet new people.

Our HenPower team have a great time!  If you are a young person with a disability who would like to join in the fun, or someone 50+ who would like to come and volunteer on the project, we would love to hear from you!

Get in touch with Cassandra  on 020 8985 9089 or today!

Check out these lovely pictures of their amazing art…

The Huddleston Centre joins the Giveacar scheme

Do you own a vehicle that you want to sell or get rid of? Then please think about donating it to us through Giveacar!

Giveacar raises money for UK charities by scrapping and selling old cars. They provide a nationwide FREE service which:

  • Arranges the collection of the vehicle from your home for FREE; and
  • Recycles it at an authorised facility or sends it to auction (depending on its age and condition).

Scrap donations raise about £35 for the charity (depending on the price of metal) while auction cars can raise much more.

To arrange the donation of a car, visit or call 020 7736 4242, quoting The Huddleston Centre as your preferred charity.

New funding partners

The Huddleston Centre would like to thank our newest funding partners:


The Greggs Foundation

The Morrisons Foundation

The Zurich Community Trust

The Bernard Sunley Charitable Foundation

The Clothworkers’ Foundation


We’re very excited to be working with each of you to support local people in 2016.
