Over 120 projects funded by 3,800 backers. £1.3M + raised and counting!
A partnership of charities and social enterprises has come together to establish an inclusive new community enterprise in the form of a shared and collaborative Makerspace located in Longford Road, two minutes walk from Bognor railway station. It will provide unique facilities to make, build, repair, design and sell that will benefit children, young people and adults and help to build a skilled workforce for West Sussex. We'll run training programmes that help people to learn new skills, achieve their employment objectives and build confidence. We'll also provide supported training and work experience opportunities for adults with learning disabilities and mental health issues. The Makerspace will host high-quality arts activities that will benefit the community, offer bespoke training and enhance West Sussex’s reputation as an important national cultural centre. The first task will be to install two new toilets!
