Connecting people, ideas, and support from the crowd to make Leicester an even better place!
Our aim is to provide a 'Hall for All' an accessible hall, with accessible facilities for disadvantaged groups to benefit from. Trans4m occupy a workshop which is not utilised enough in its current state. There is huge potential to renovate this space in to a 'Hall for All' that has disabled access and adapted facilities. Meeting the need for vulnerable groups to engage in recreation, sports, socialising and promote well-being. A total renovation is required for this space i.e rewiring, construction work, decorating and appropriate facilities, sports equipment. We currently offer alternative training & education to socially disadvantaged 14-24 year old's in a variety of vocational subjects but would like to increase this offer to include sport, active leisure and well-being in a location where the client group will feel comfortable to participate in physical activities. The project will also enable us to generate income to support our community and continue with our mission.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The Hall for All will provide a much needed accessible venue for groups to engage in recreation, sports, activities, socialising to improve well being. There is little in the way of accessible venues run by an organisation that is experienced in meeting the needs of vulnerable groups. The Hall for All provides the opportunity to promote well-being and empowerment. It will not just provide a place to socialise but will create volunteering opportunities, jobs and an accessible place to learn and engage in fulfilling experiences. It will enable us to increase our training curriculum to be able to offer accredited training in sport and active leisure for disadvantaged individuals as well as offering an affordable accessible facility for the local community.
Steps to get it done:
About the space
On the outskirts of the City centre and at the edge of St Matthews's Estate. The former workshop that is crying out for some TLC and to be used effectively again.
