The Neighbourhood Resource Association of Westminster Park (NRAWP) began in 2002 as a group of residents who wanted more local programs and services in the Westminster Park area for their children. This group of about seven parents worked together with the City of London and other agency representatives to advocate for more activities in their neighbourhood. During 2003; with the guidance and assistance of the South London Neighbourhood Resource Centre, NRAWP applied for grant opportunities so that the aditional programs and services could become a reality.
In January 2004, this group was enlarged, reorganized and formalized to become the Neighbourhood Resource Association of Westminster Park (NRAWP). Today, this association continues to work under the umbrella of the South London Neighbourhood Resource Centre and with these partners and other local organizations to bring programs and services that will benefit the residents of Westminster Park, with the main focus on our youth.
NRAWP operates from the Westminster Optimist Centre at 650 Osgoode Drive, between St. Francis Catholic School and the Westminster Park outdoor swimming pool.
