About Us

outside-aboutEstablished in 2002 we are a Registered Charity and not-for-profit organisation based in the Brockworth Library Building. Since 2002 we have been helping local residents in our community in many ways including help to find jobs, get back into education/training and to advise on their financial difficulties. In 2011 we started providing youth services and managing the Brockworth Youth Centre. In 2012 we began managing the Brockworth Community Library. Some of the services we have provided since our inception include:

  • Community Library Services
  • Youth services
  • Educational courses
  • Work placements
  • Internet cafè
  • Youth football
  • Working with ex-offenders, substance mis-users and socially deprived residents

seating-areaWe have received funding from many organisations over the years including the Big Lottery Fund, Learning Skills Council’s Transformation Fund, Next Step, Brockworth Enterprise School, Gloucestershire County Council, Tewkesbury Borough Council and the Brockworth Parish Council.

With the announced withdrawal of Gloucestershire County Council funding for Brockworth Library and Youth Services we have been working very hard to find a way to continue these services. Beginning in July 2011 the Brockworth Community Project is now providing Youth Services at the Brockworth Youth Centre with financial support from the Brockworth Parish Council and a team of volunteers. Beginning in November 2012 we are managing the Brockworth Community Library Service. Want to be part of this excitement?
