Purpose

Abergavenny Community Trust is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) Reg. Charity No. 1177133

The Community Centre taps and combine existing resources – human, natural, built, financial – in order to improve life for [more] ordinary people.

At its core, underpinning the work of the Community Trust are two charitable objectives. The Trust’s charitable purposes can be summarised as follows:

*To improve the lives of the diverse residents of Abergavenny by working with the local authorities, voluntary sector, other organisations and community groups to provide an opportunity for residents to mix together and enjoy educational, social, welfare, leisure and recreational activities in a welcoming facility.

*To maintain and manage the Abergavenny Community Centre in furtherance of this common purpose, through income generation and rental fees.

The Community Centre is a communal resource, and securing this built asset for the benefit of the community represents a foundational step on our lifelong ambition to make our neighbourhoods feel stronger and be safer; enabling people to connect and live a fulfilled life in the process.

While our focus remains firmly in the moment, the architect’s concept above [c2008] captures a vision for how the building/grounds may continue to serve communities and neighbourhoods into the future; one-step-at-a-time.
