Service description:

Indian Hindu Welfare Organisation (IHWO) is a dynamic voluntary organisation focused on enriching the lives of Northampton’s Hindus by meeting their social, cultural, welfare and health needs. IHWO is also working towards building an integrated local society by developing partnerships with and encouraging involvement from different communities.

IHWO works tirelessly in delivering an ever changing and exciting programme of activities and events to people of all ages, which includes classes, clubs, trips, sports, entertainment and cultural events.

IHWO is also developing an innovative landmark community facility, to be known as the Northampton Kutumbh Centre (or ‘wider family’), which will be open to everyone and will encompass state-of-the-art sports, leisure, educational and enterprise facilities, as well as a spectacular Hindu temple.

IHWO was established in 1996 with a handful of people. Since then it has grown year on year both in size and in the service it delivers. Today IHWO is a major community-focused charity supported by local authorities as well as other regional and national organisations.

IHWO is lead by an experienced and highly skilled team of people that make up the organisation’s Management Committee. Additionally, IHWO pulls in and is supported by an extensive number of dedicated volunteers from the local community.

Within Northampton IHWO is probably best known for its carnival style Diwali Lights Celebration. The event is held every year in Northampton’s town centre, attracting thousands of people of all ages and cultural backgrounds. This event in particular demonstrates IHWO’s aim of encouraging integration between the different communities of Northampton.

IHWO welcomes EVERYONE to take part in its events and activities.
