The Bengali Workers’ Association (BWA) was originally known as the Bengali Workers’ Action Group (BWAG). The Association was established in 1976 and over the years has steadily grown from being a small group of community activist based in temporary portakabins to being a largest community-led voluntary organisation in Camden serving over 5000 residents from different backgrounds including Bengali.
Since 1990 the Association has been based in a multi purpose building called the Surma Community Centre which has been a focal point of the Bangladeshi community and a venue for a wide range of social, cultural and religious events and a meeting place for over 16 years.
As a community anchor, the organisation continues to provide the services and support that enables local people to manage their lives more effectively and to assume greater responsibility for their communities. We provide the following support services: Advice & Advocacy, Employment & Training, Healthy Lifestyles, Older People’s Service, Women’s Development, Younger People’s Service, BWA COVID Emergency Response
