30 years on, and still with local community groups and trustees at the core, Space at the Broomhouse Hub has a new state-of-the-art community building housing a community training café. We have grown and now deliver 17 projects, with 60 staff and over 250 volunteers. We deliver diverse services supporting young people, families, older people and carers amongst others, engaging with local people more than 34,000 times last year.

Welcoming - Nurturing relationships & kind experiences that enable people to smile, flourish & be resilient

Creative - Initiating and embracing challenges, innovation, opportunities and new ideas
