History

We are a multi-purpose Community Association operating in the Tollington Ward, in North Islington, London. Our Association was set up originally in 1972 by a group of local parents who needed somewhere for their children to play. We are a multi-cultural organisation that celebrates diversity and inclusion.

We aim to provide services to the whole community irrespective of age, gender, race, disability or sexual orientation. All are welcome to our centre, known locally as “The Laundry”.

Over the last forty years we have had and will continue to have a major influence for the good in our community, providing a stable base in a rapidly changing environment.

From 2009 onward Hanley Crouch Community Association decided to informally rename ourselves “The Laundry”.
