The Beacon Community Centre
Project Category: Registered charity
Our mission is Bringing people together and our vision for the centre is that it is
A centre for all in Beacon Heath that brings people together with opportunities for fun and easy access to activities and services. Community is at the heart of what we do; that means being flexible and encouraging everyone to work together for the benefit of our neighbourhood.
A centre that serves the community
Beacon Heath has areas of high deprivation in the area. Most concerning of all is that the council housing estate is in the lowest 10% in the country for access to services and housing. It is also in the lowest 20% for income, employment and education, training & skills according to the social deprivation index.
We see the centre as a vital part of the community in ensuring local needs are met. We already host a number of services for a variety of people including
- Local youth
- Young families
We are also working with Exeter Food Bank to enable them to base some of their work here in the centre so they can serve a number of their clients who live here.
