Our impact on the community

Staple Hill Community Hub provides resources and practical support for local people, many of whom are the most vulnerable and isolated in our community. Our volunteers have years of experience delivering a wide range of support to those in need. Hub users have somewhere safe they can come and feel part of their community. We support people who are in most need, specifically people with learning difficulties, mental health problems, the isolated elderly, the unemployed and anyone else who needs us.

On this large estate we offer a safe environment where people can meet, join in activities, make new friends, learn new skills and achieve a sense of belonging. The day trips we organise are for some of our users the only holiday they have. This year we ran cookery courses for young mums who had very limited cooking skills. We run lunch and breakfast clubs at heavily subsidised prices benefitting those on low incomes and those who for various reasons are unable to cook for themselves.
