Helping our communities and volunteers to improve our beautiful borough
Linacre Community Centre provides a welcoming, safe place for young people and families. The centre is already used by over 100 local residents every week. Funding from Spacehive will allow us to renovate further rooms in the old building and make them safe for the community to use. We have a large team of motivated volunteers who have managed to get the building open with a reduced operating space. We now need funding to modernise the old building and allow much needed repairs to take place.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The centre provides the following free services: - VIBE youth projects for 100 young people per week - Mens Lunch Club (free meals and social space for men) - Community coffee mornings - 1-2-1 drop in service for young people and parents - Community gardening - Free room hire for community groups Our team of volunteers have worked tirelessly to get the building open and operational however there is still so much to be done to modernise the space and ensure it is fit for purpose. Without investment we will not be able to sustain the work we currently deliver.
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.
