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:

  • Decorate youth room
  • Installation of new boiler
  • Decorate four rooms
  • Furnish reception area
  • Fit building signage

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:

  • Hire skips
  • Clear rubble and rubbish
  • Strip walls and re-plaster where needed
  • Install new boiler & radiators
  • Paint & decorate youth room
  • Paint & decorate office space
