Linacre Community Centre will provide a welcoming, safe place for young people and families. The centre will be used by over 100 local residents every week. Funding from Spacehive will allow us to renovate the old building and make it safe for the community to use. We have a large team of motivated volunteers but are reliant on donations and grant funding to make this project happen.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Once open, the centre will provide the following free services: - VIBE youth projects for 40 young people per week - After school VIBE Hangout for 125 young people per week - 1-2-1 drop in service for young people and parents - Community gardening - Free room hire for community groups There will also be the opportunity for small businesses/individuals to hire room space.
Steps to get it done:
We are Conquer Life, a not-for-profit social enterprise which exists to empower young people to raise aspirations and build emotional resilience. We were founded in 2017 and have a proven track record of delivering meaningful, positive activities for our community. 80% of our staff team are under the age of 25 and 90% live within a 2 mile radius of the centre. We are passionate about providing a better future for our young people and hope you will support us on our mission.
