About WACA

The Waterlooville Area Community Association (WACA) was established in 1974 as a charity for the benefit of the community. In April 2016, the charity became a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) Association, and in September 2023, it became a CIO Foundation. We trade under the acronym WACA CIO.
Charity Number: 1165822

The organisation is overseen by a Board of Trustees responsible for making decisions regarding the Centre, including financial matters, based on recommendations from the Community Centre’s staff.

Our Mission

To create a secure space for both learning and leisure, ensuring accessibility and affordability for all. We firmly believe in the integral role of community spirit in the British way of life.

At Waterlooville Community Centre, we are committed to promoting and reinforcing this philosophy, embracing diversity without regard to race, colour or creed.

Our Facilities

The Centre has seven different sized rooms available for hire, on an adhoc basis or for regular bookings.

The office is open from 09:00 am until 15:00, Monday to Friday and there is a caretaker available at all other times while the Centre is open, most days until at least 22:00 for enquiries and booking enquiries.

Car Parking Facilities

WACA Car Park

The yellow bays, behind and to the rear of the Centre are free to use for our users.

The white bays in the main car park are for ASDA customers and have a 2 hour limit on parking time.

If you have too much fun at one of your parties, we don’t mind if you leave your vehicle parked over night (at your own risk of course…), as long as you come back to collect it the next morning.

There are 40 WACA bays including 3 disabled spaces. Talk to Reception or a Caretaker if more spaces are needed.

CCTV in the building

For your safety and security, please be aware that there are CCTV recording cameras throughout the Centre.
