Worcester Community Trust is a registered charity that runs Six Community Centres in the City of Worcester providing crucial facilities for community use, activities & services empowering people of all ages, the socially isolated, the lonely, victims of domestic abuse and the wider community.
We have over 20 Rooms and Halls of various sizes across our six centres which are available to hire for everything from Board Meetings to Training Days and from Events that need a stage to Community Halls. Our rooms are used by many community groups providing many activities for people across the whole of the City. All of our Hubs are either new or have been recently refurbished.
All of the profits made via Room and Facility Hire go back into providing services for the local community.
