As well as an advice service the FNA provides support for older people with health, arts and social activities, and community development activities for the Bangladeshi community. They also respond to planning and licensing applications and work to improve the quality of life in the neighbourhood. Fitzrovia News is also supported by the FNA and our advertising revenue contributes towards its running costs.
Despite the popular image of Fitzrovia as an upmarket and trendy area the reality is very different. Like many of London’s neighbourhoods, Fitzrovia is a mixed area where there is a wide disparity of wealth. The majority of people here rent their homes. There are many people living in council and housing association properties as well as many residents living in poor quality private rented accommodation. Air quality is poor and their is a shortage of open space and affordable housing.
Please visit the FNA’s donate page this winter to make a one-off payment to help them continue their work. Or you can show your support by liking their Facebook Page, or following their pages on Google+ and Linkedin.
