A place to go, a place to do and a place to connect
We want to bring support and services closer to where you are by creating a network of places in your neighbourhoods where you can receive information, advice and support as early as possible. Community hubs will be welcoming and safe places that make it easy for you to talk to someone, find support to help yourselves, access services when needed and help to be part of the community.
Our first three hubs
We are now opening our first three community hubs, Sue Bramley, Marks Gate and William Bellamy. More Community Hubs will be unveiled across the borough later in the year, making it even easier for you to access help and advice on your doorstep.
All community hubs will provide information, advice and support with:
- jobs, training, and courses
- housing and homelessness
- money and debt
- health and wellbeing
- general council services
- help getting online
- events and activities
A range of services and activities will take place in hubs. Among these, will include:
- antenatal and postnatal checks
- Talking Therapies counselling
- drop-ins to see the Safer Neighbourhood Team
- reporting a crime online
- support to join a Community Food Club
- help for debt
- applying for benefits
- help finding work
- family play sessions for children aged 0-5 years
- healthier life – losing weight, exercising, or stopping smoking
You can also see what additional services are available at your local Community Hub and more information about the venue.
