Through youth advocacy, the Northwest London Resource Centre became a reality in September 2002. As a neighbourhood resource centre, NWLRC is many things to many people. NWLRC works with a community development philosophy and a preventive and holistic approach to service. NWLRC provides basic needs services, neighbourhood support programs and activities. Services and activities are available for all age groups which reduce isolation, provide support and education, increase social skills and life skills and reduce and prevent “at risk” situations.
