The Forest Estate Community Hub opened in 2012, with a heart to provide an inclusive and attractive environment for all residents on the Forest Estate. The team works in particular with children and young people, seeking to give them an opportunity to take part in enjoyable activities, access helpful services and build pride in their local community.
The team runs film nights, cooking clubs, community cafe and provides free access to laptops and internet, along with many other clubs and projects.
The amazing work of The Forest Estate Community Hub and The Journey team who manage the project has recently been recognised by being awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
We are so encouraged by their incredible work and heart for their local community and extend a massive ‘well done’ to the team and everyone involved in the project!
