Holbrooks Community Association is a registered charity which began after WW2 with a donation from the British War Relief Societies of America as a thank you for the kindness shown to the troops stationed in Holbrooks. It is managed by a group of residents whose aims are to provide opportunities for local people to participate in community life. Its objectives for the past 70 years are to reduce social isolation, improve health and well-being, increase aspirations of young people, to improve educational attainment, increase participation in social and leisure activities, and to provide learning opportunities for adults and children.To help aid the community the Holbrooks Community Centre became HCCAs sister organisation and have helped the community centre for the past 30 years.
