Cheylesmore Community Association manages the Cheylesmore Community Centre, whose purpose is to:-
- Be a venue for local residents’ activities ~ not running activities in the Centre ourselves as an Association, but providing the facilities in which other community groups can operate.
- Facilitate local groups to meet community needs ~ helping with community capacity building so that groups can better meet local needs, especially where gaps in provision are identified. This has begun to happen from 2017 with the Community Library and Youth Club in 2019. Soon a community cafe will open.
- Support volunteering ~ mobilising individual residents to engage with activities going on, both running the centre itself and supporting those activities taking place.
