Newlands Community Association began its life in 1996 when it was established as a focal point for the many local community groups in the Newlands area. It was a member of the steering groups which successfully bid for SRB funding for the period 1997 to 2004. The funding was administered during this time by the Newlands Partnership Board.

In 2004 Newlands Community Association was designated to continue the work of the Newlands Partnership Board.

The NCA has a mission to ‘relieve poverty, advance education, promote and assist in the provision of leisure and recreational facilities, thus improving the life of the area’s communities and residents.

The Newlands area includes:
Greengates, Fagley, Ravenscliffe, Bradford Moor and Eccleshill
