Welcome to Worcester Community Trust

Thank you for visiting our Website which is updated on a daily basis.
We’re a registered charity running six Community Hubs in Worcester for Commercial & Community use.

We run a wide range of Community and Youth Projects in the City of Worcester supported by income generated from Facility Hire.

Pictured: On Saturday 16th June we were out on the road in Worcester for the OVO Energy Women’s Tour, a cycling event taking part across Great Britain. We showcased all of the different projects and pictured is Ruth from the Joy Project.

Our Hubs are available for hire for Clubs, Exercise Classes, Community Groups and for Commercial Use for Meetings, Training and other events.

By booking our fabulous meetings spaces you are not only meeting your own requirements, but you are helping to support a wide range of community services and activities. Give us the opportunity of showing you how good our venues really are! Here are some testimonials from our clients:

“I would also like to let you know how pleased we were with the whole booking process. We booked the room last minute and your teams were all very accommodating. Everything we needed was provided and the food was great!” NHS April 2018

“Just to say a big thank you for the use of The Warndon Hall today, the facilities were very good and nice friendly staff. Our event went very well” County Council 16th January 2018 

“The small meeting room at Warndon was perfect for our presentation. The use of the Digital Display Screen rather than a projector was very helpful” NHS Department October 2017 

“Our Training Event went exceptionally well aided by your staff who went out of their way to help. Our presentations ran very smoothly in a perfect environment” – Worcester Engineering Company September 2017

Building a Better Future!

Photo: The Building Block is our Constructions Skills Training Centre. We run various courses including Plastering, Plumbing, Tiling, Electrical, Bricklaying and Woodwork, mainly on an evening. We also run other courses such as CSCS. Please click the link to see all courses.

“I have recently completed the 5 week plastering course (evening sessions) and I am thrilled to have taken part. I had never done any plastering whatsoever before hand and now feel fully confident to take on projects in my home by myself. The facility is a fantastic, easy to find with ample parking close by. I received constant support and advice throughout all of the training, in a relaxed and friendly environment. Highly recommended, and once again Thank you to all at the Building Block!”
Rachel Lines May 2017

“Just finished the bricklaying course before Christmas. Totally recommend it, worth many more times the small fee you pay, Peter and Paul are brilliant tutors, and left with a deep sense of satisfaction. Thank you folks for this brilliant community service that sends folk away with new skills, more confidence and a deep sense of worth….will be returning for other courses”
Peter Deane January 2018

“Did a plastering course at The Building Block. Great course ran by experienced instructors who were really helpful and really went the extra mile/ Great facility, well looked after. Would recommend to anyone”.
Richard Bennet 23 February 2018
