Who We Are

WECA is a registered charity, government and local council approved organisation operating in Warrington. It was formed in January 2004 to act as an umbrella body for 'grassroots', community and voluntary ethnic groups in Warrington.

WECA represents culturally diverse groups at strategic and community level. It works with both statutory and non-statutory services to identify needs and advocates wishes and changes of Warrington's ethnic communities.

WECA's widely known across Warrington and the North West for organising the yearly cultural festival known as the 'Mela'. This major event brings together different communities to celebrate music, dance, entertainment and food of different cultures. It's the most happening, inspiring and popular event for the whole community!
