What’s special about this housing opportunity

We are supporting the youth club’s Building Preservation Trust (BPT) in their efforts to bring a the building back into use as a community asset in future. If you are housed in this beautiful youth club, then you will be expected to prioritise your volunteering efforts towards the BPT’s objectives. It’s a fantastic cause and we are excited to play a part in bringing a long-closed youth club back into use, by housing two great property guardians in the interim.

Here’s just a few examples of the potential volunteering opportunities that our guardians can work with the trustees on:

  • Writing funding applications
  • Building partnerships with potential users of the space (probably youth service or community based services)
  • Gardening
  • Maintaining and improving the building
  • Comms and media representation for the project
  • Hosting partners in the space
