A charity-run dance troupe in Brentford facing closure in the coming months is desperate to find a permanent home.
Alliance Dance Unit (ADU) founder Torron-Lee Dewar is quickly running out of options to keep his dance school running with a March deadline fast-approaching.
He says "help is scarce" in the borough and there is a serious issue of lack of space for charitable organisations like his.
Loosing their space for the third time, Mr Dewar is pleading to Hounslow council to step up and help before it is forced to shut down.
Mr Dewar who set up ADU at the age of 16 to keep young people away from crime, said: "Despite our pleas to our local council and it’s developers, the need for community services such as ours remain ignored.
"We are fully aware that a new arts centre is due to open in Brentford, but I doubt we will get the opportunity to be a part of that.
"We do everything within our power to give back to the locals and teach the next generation new skills such as teamwork and respect.
"Who will teach these kids this if we close?"
ADU faces closure due to its current space at Rose Community Centre being given for "more money" to accommodate a nursery.
The nursery hours at the venue clash with the timings the dance group runs its classes, said Mr Dewar.
Prior to this, the group was forced out of the Waterman's Centre in Brentford due to unaffordable rates.
The performing arts registered charity has set up a fundraising campaign " A Home for the Arts " to keep the group alive.
Mr Dewar said: "When we first moved to Rose Community Centre, gangs would come down and cause trouble right outside our doors and we even had some of our banners burned down.
"Despite all of this, we still managed to change these attitudes by standing up for what we believed in, and involved the bored kids hanging around.
"We also encouraged their younger siblings to join us, which proved to be a real success.
"Now we need help to secure a suitable site in the borough."
ADU was started in 2009 and has throughout its lifespan struggled to secure a place it can permanently call home.
From four dancers practising in his grandmother's back garden to offering a network of classes for people at different levels and ages, ADU has outgrown its humble beginnings.
It has helped turn hundreds of children and young adults' into aspiring artists while helping them through tough times in their lives, the charity said.
The award-winning group has previously won awards for making the borough a safer place presented by Hounslow borough commander Raj Kohli and more recently Torron-Lee was honoured in the British Citizen Awards for Service to the Arts.
