Who are we?
We are local residents: just ordinary people living, working, parenting, growing-up and growing old in and around, Abergavenny. Our journey to secure a local asset (the old school) for community ownership began in 2004.
The lived experiences of people spanning decades comes together here and informs what happens now, and, with a foot in the past and a view to the future, the Trust is working differently to include new ways of thinking, acting and working with others to improve lives.
The Charity, through the provision of the Abergavenny Community Centre brings people together to socialize – keeping people active and involved. The role of the charity is to include people, and be led by them in determining how existing resources (time, effort, skills, money) are combined and re-allocatd to address local priorities.
The together under one roof ethos nutures a sharing/supporting culture that is opening ways for more of us to contribute, whereby, creating/freeing a-little-bit-more for each other for giving back to different communities in which we identify, live and belong.
The Centre is a community-led response made up of people who, through their own personal experience have come to understand that life can be complicated, and, when looking for help that the best kind is simple, practical & within reach.
