Things are constantly changing in Newcastle – and our aim is to put residents at the heart of that change.
A charitable company with a community vision, Centre West works to give residents a voice in the issues that matter in the Newcastle. Local people are at the heart of our work – our Trustees are local people and specialists with a passion for making a difference.
If you would like to make a difference and join our Board we would love to hear from you. (see contact details below).
Centre West grew from the successful Newcastle New Deal for Communities programme, with a focus on issues like jobs, health, education and the environment – and above all, a strong, safe community.
We work with communities across Newcastle and now in Gateshead, typically in the more disadvantaged neighbourhoods, with children, young people and families.
Making things happen
That means supporting projects like The Beacon – a £6.7m centre for enterprise and community on Westgate Road. Popular with local groups and businesses alike, The Beacon has made a real impact promoting and supporting enterprise in our community.
It means backing schemes like Hat-Trick which helps thousands of young people every year to gain skills and confidence through sport and CHEFF - Cooking, Healthy Eating, Fitness and Fun work with hundreds more and their families.
And most of all, it means giving local people a helping hand to get involved and make a difference.
