THE JASPAR FOUNDATION
The Jaspar Foundation (Registered Charity No. 1127243) has supported various Asian elderly groups since 2009 promoting good health and well-being and organising social activities in order to enrich the fabric of our local community.
The Foundation provides grants for projects to relieve people who are in need, hardship or distress due to their social and economic circumstances. It provides grants to institutions and promotes activities which advance the Asian community. The Jaspar Centre is a home for the essence of these Foundation objectives. It is housed within the majestic Grade II Listed former Harrow Magistrate’s Court building and so perfectly placed to serve the local area. Focusing on the Asian elderly members of our community, the Centre aims to take over some of the popular social activities run in rooms that have been hired at Harrow Leisure Centre since 2009.
The building has been designed with the community in mind. Halls, oﬃces and rooms have been provided for organised activities. Supervised health and cultural activities (such as yoga and general activity classes, folk dancing and singing) will also be provided within the Centre. The Centre will form a hub for daily/weekly activities such as providing fresh hot lunches, medical advice, a drop-in clinic, language courses and general welfare support. All the facilities within the building will also be available for private hire.
