A community hub For Friockheim
Based in the former Eastgate Primary School, The Hub @ Friockheim is a fully inclusive project involving the whole community which is owned, managed and operated by the community itself as a registered charity.
The Friockheim Community Hub Articles of Association can be found here.
The Hub aims to support all age groups and provide a place for residents to get together socially and groups & clubs to meet.
• Young People
• Mother & toddlers
• Pre-school children
The Hub will provide a range of community services with access to wide range of facilities and classes including changing places which will be open 24/7, 365 days a year (Access via RADAR key).
Why does the Hub need to charge for some of its services?
The Hub needs to cover its running costs – staffing, running the building, insurance, power, etc. We do not receive any subsidies from the local authority, NHS or other agencies. That is why we need to charge but we will always aim to keep charges as low and competitive as possible.
We are a ‘not for profit organisation’ and any surplus funds are used to deliver services and support to those suffering inequalities within our Community. This includes people who have specific health or social needs, are suffering hardship or may benefit from support with specific issues, such as loneliness, debt, depression, social isolation and poor mental health.
