Thornbury Centre


Our vision:

Is to bring communities and partners from all sectors together to rebuild the area's social capital so we have pro-active prosperous citizens who experience good health and wellbeing. The Centre is a resource for our communities and for frontline third sector groups. We are a distinctive venue providing rentable accommodation to new and established organisations that extend the services offered to our local communities. Our rooms are also available for conferencing and training with free Wi Fi throughout the building. Our on-site cafe provides catering facilities for conferences and to meet the needs of attendees. Our Hub @ the Centre provides a learning environment, with computers that can be used by groups for training. Thornbury Centre works with a number of key partners to create and deliver innovative projects that address needs and gaps in services. Our provision includes a wide range of projects providing caring and ethical services:

Street Life Speaks Out

It will develop skills and confidence so local people can influence and shape local and wider decision making about community priorities.
