Vision & Mission


To provide Learning and Social Support for our Community.


Hallam Community Learning Centre will provide a place where the local community can meet, communicate and develop skills, pathways and learn in friendly supportive surroundings.


No matter what you call your local House: a Community Centre; Learning Centre or Neighbourhood House they all have one thing in common and that is that they are a place for members of the community.

Neighbourhood Houses employ a coordinator/manager for the day to day running and staff management but also rely on volunteers from their community to help out in a variety of ways including  on the Governance Committee to ensure that the community interests are high on the agenda…it is also a wonderful opportunity for individuals to either learn new skills as a member of a committee or utilize existing skills – either way it is a great way to connect and be a part of the decision making process for your local community.

Going through the door of a Neighbourhood House has been the turning point for many people in overcoming loneliness; social isolation or plain boredom!  It’s a place to learn new skills so why not investigate your local House

     – it’s the best kept secret in town!

Join Up for Health’s Sake…

According to research: “The quality of a person’s social life could have an even greater effect on their health than diet and exercise”
