To enable the local community to participate in our workshops and learn/ develop their building and DIY skills.
To integrate and socialise with the community creating a sense of belonging to members that share the same interest.
As part of Worcester Community Trust, The Building Block is open to the whole community. We were created to help members of the public to learn and develop building and DIY skills (helping them to save money in their projects) as well as helping people to learn new skills to start a new career.
We provide a range of skills courses including Bricklaying, Plumbing, Plastering, Tiling and Carpentry. We also run monthly manual handling courses. The courses generally run for a few hours during the day and go over a period of a few weeks, so you can normally find something to suit. Some courses run on an evening and some are short day courses.
The courses are designed to give you an opportunity to be proud of your own skilled manual work reflecting positively in your life by giving you a sense of achievement, you will also go away able to tackle your own DIY problems armed with a new set of skills.
We are a small and very approachable team consisting mainly of volunteers who are professionals and very keen to pass on their knowledge and skills.
