The Community Hub welcomes residents at Keyham Green Places Community Centre (KGP) in the heart of the Keyham community at 163, Renown Street. (For a list of the variety of activities taking place at KGP throughout the week click here.)
Having moved into a space at KGP in mid-September, 2021 the Community Hub hosts workers and volunteers from local organisations who help and support residents with a variety of issues. They are also on hand to advise and listen to ideas for how Keyham can recover and strengthen as a community following the tragedy.
Professionals and volunteers are on hand to signpost visitors to the many professional support agencies for those affected by the events in August 2021. They are also able to direct people to a range of community activities taking place in and around Keyham including: children and youth activities, exercise and social activities for all generations.
The Hub has recently been working with Nicki of the Wolseley Trust to add a number of community groups, clubs, societies, events and activities to the Community Map featured on the Our Plymouth website. The map is an excellent resource showing what is available for residents in their locality and you can see it here.
The Community Hub is keen to develop into what local residents want and need. Its first event, Community Voices Get Together, was held on Monday, 27th September, 2021 at the 1st Keyham Scouts HQ in Knowle Avenue. More than 50 people attended and there were lots of positive discussions around future activities, support, networks and community spaces. To see some photos of the event click here. Community Voices has appeared at many subsequent events and staff aim to collate as many residents’ opinions as possible. If you would like to make your voice heard about the future of the area please email the below address.
