WAC Notices

WAC Pamphlet for current information

Waterloo Action Centre has published another pamphlet  WAC Pamphlet - AUTUMN 2013 which is distributed to retired people in the local area. As before, it will have information about the wide range of activities that take place here at WAC and how you can get involved with the local community and lots more.  If you would like a copy, please collect from WAC Reception.


Following consultation about the future location for Waterloo Library please note that the WAC option has NOT been agreed by WAC or current users as being compatible with activities in WAC nor have there been discussions which make it clear whether WAC would remain financially viable.  However this is consultation and do please go and see for yourself and complete the brief questionnaire.


Good News for WAC!
Well-needed refurbishments have been completed thanks to Peter Minet Trust,
Legal Support Trust, National Theatre, Lend Lease 
Plus personal donations from the community. Heater & Soundproofing

Other centres activities

GET READING! Project at Coin Street Community Centre

A place to relax, a chance to make friends and a fresh way to share reading!
At this new group at the South Bank Centre you don’t have to read anything in advance, and everything is read aloud each week. Just drop by and enjoy listening to and talking about stories and poems. Refreshments are provided.


Every day people in the UK go hungry for reasons ranging from redundancy to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income. Trussell Trust Foodbanks provide a minimum of three days emergency food and support to people experiencing crisis in the UK.

We collect non perishable food for local people in crisis on behalf of Oasis' Waterloo Foodbank.  Pick up a  Shopping List from Reception, where you can leave your donations in the box. If it's more convenient you can also leave them at Oasis' Hub Café, 1a Kennington Road.

All donations gratefully received.
