Read about our charities new community hub in Halifax

Following successful hubs in Blackburn & Burnley, our charity Newground Together has opened a new hub in Halifax.

The ‘Hub @ Bull Green,’ managed by Newground Together teams, offers a welcoming environment for support, workshops, and weekly activities.

The grand opening welcomed local groups, along with Holly Lynch, MP, Deputy Mayor for Calderdale Councillor Sue Holdsworth, and Calderdale Councillors Silvia Dacre and Scott Patient.

At the hub, community members can seek advice from employment and energy specialists on re-entering the workforce, acquiring new skills, and tips for lowering energy bills.

The hub is made up of three one-to-one rooms to offer people direct, in person support.

The hub features a community activity room for Newground Together teams to offer training workshops, advice sessions, craft groups, wellbeing activities, and more. 

On top of all this, Newground’s skilled staff, known for helping hundreds secure jobs, find suitable training courses, and offer energy advice, will be available all week.

Emily Pearson, Community Programme Manager for Newground Together said:

“We’re incredibly passionate about providing face-to-face support to the community as much as possible, and having this dedicated hub allows us to do just that. We are eager to collaborate with other local community organisations and host their workshops in this versatile space. So far this year, we’ve helped 50 individuals return to work, achieve 103 new qualifications, and conducted numerous energy advice sessions. But, our ambitions don’t stop there. This hub enables us to continue our work with the community, for the community, and alongside our partners. We’re excited about the possibilities this new space opens up for us to achieve together.”

The hub will be open during the week on Monday to Thursday from 9am to 5pm and on Fridays, 9am to 4pm.

As always, a massive thank you to our customers, as this wouldn’t have been possible without your support.
