St George Community Association was set up in 1987 by a group of local residents who felt that there was a need for a community centre in St George. They originally met in a local library and held events in St George Park. After many years of campaigning a local building was found on the site of the old grammar school canteen. The building was in complete disrepair and eventually, in 1995, grant aid was given by Bristol City Council and the new Community Centre was built.

The organisation has a Community Asset Transfer from Bristol City Council, who lease us the building rent free. In return we look after and run the building for the benefit of residents in St George.  This means that all hire income is used to maintain the centre and develop new community services. We also fundraise for particular projects and have recently received small grants from the St George Neighbourhood Partnership Wellbeing Fund and the  Community First Fund. We're very grateful to all our funders and supporters.
