PWA Slough

Going Above And Beyond For The Community

The Pakistan Welfare Association (PWA) is one of Slough’s longest established community organisations. It was first associated with and supported by Slough Borough Council as long ago as 1962. PWA has survived as an organisation for over 57 years, despite the many challenges it has faced, this bears testimony to its resilience and durability, more importantly, it reflects the value it has provided at various times for the Pakistani community.

Empowering Community, Enriching Lives

PWA Slough - Together for a Brighter Tomorrow.

Welcome to
PWA Slough

In the 2011 Census, the Pakistani community at 24,869 was the largest ethnic minority group in Slough representing 17.74% of the population. A community that has faced many hardships across almost five generations in Slough. It is well documented that a community’s identity is multifaceted. The Pakistani community that has made Slough its home has played an important role in the social, economic, environmental and political life of Slough’s rich fabric. As an organisation, PWA has endured, developed and grown despite reduced funding opportunities and the impact of austerity on both its community and as an organisation. The long-term objectives of PWA are to:

  • Improve the spaces and places that matter to communities.
  • Bring people together and build strong relationships across all communities.
  • Enable more people to fulfil their potential by working to address issues at the earliest possible stage.
  • Developing outreach to Slough’s diverse communities to develop cohesion and understanding.
