This new build Sure Start Community Centre provides a 240m2 extension to the existing Community Centre, creating a new entrance and reception area for the existing main hall and facilities, along with a new crèche for 20 children and additional facilities for training and counselling purposes. The rear entrance has been updated to DDA requirements.
The existing Community Centre has been partially refurbished internally, with spaces rearranged and the introduction of a new, fully equipped kitchen.
All elements of the project were designed to complement each other, giving continuity to the scheme as a whole.
These new and refurbished facilities enable the Community Association and Sure Start to work together to provide an integrated service of activities, support and training facilities, available at the very heart of the Gascoigne Estate for use by the whole community.
