About this cause

The Trust runs the Linskill Centre for the benefit of the local community and, through provided activities and services, meets the needs of all ages and sectors. As a large venue, Linskill hosts many different activities and services. Some are delivered by the Trust; eg successful OFSTED nursery, community café, heritage projects and older people’s activities. Others are offered by tenant organisations and by regular weekly private hirers. Linskill offers a varied programme including: employability support, community learning, counselling, health and fitness, arts, disability support and youth theatre. The Centre is a successful, thriving resource serving some of the most disadvantaged communities across North Tyneside and attracting over 10,000 visits per month.

How this cause brings people in the community together

The sensory room brings families together within our community to access the facility. Parents hire the space collectively allowing their children to benefit from the therapeutic and calm atmosphere and parents to engage and support each other. Parents often use the Linskill Centre for other children and family activities and also access our community cafe - all which brings the community together
