Key objectives & Outcomes

Grant purpose

Redesigning the public spaces across the community centre and Health Partnership to integrate teams, improving the point of access for residents and visitors, by unifying all support activities in one accessible and enhanced space.

Locally rooted

The centre was born 35 years ago out of the actions of people from the community, who came together to share their skills, make friends, use the spaces, and better support each other.

Improved physical and mental health

Along with its GP practice, it is the site of the UK’s first Healthy Living Centre with around 2,000 people each week making use of the support provided, alongside its café and park.
