Purpose / Mission

Registered Charity 1177133

At its core, underpinning the work of the Community Centre are the Trust’s charitable objectives – the purpose/reason for existing/being.

‘Objects’ are part of founding and forming a charity, and Trustees ensure that actions taking place are lawful, transparent, and reflect core values.

The aim is to combine resources – human, natural, built, financial – and tap potential to improve ordinary people and lives.

The Community Centre is a communal resource, and holding the asset for the joined purpose of diversity & inclusion represents a foundational step.

The life and work that takes place under this roof might be described as a “grassroots”, “cradle-to-the-grave” but whatever it is, the magic happens when people connect with each other and experience hospitality and kindness.

While staff / volunteer and Trustees focus remains firmly in the moment, the architect’s concept above [circa 2008] captures a vision for how the building/grounds may continue to serve people into the future. One step at a time.
