Our Community Hub in Northampton is a dedicated area for our Community Connectors to host groups, drop-in sessions and other community initiatives. Situated in the heart of the town centre (next door to our Northampton office) the space was developed with help by local tradespeople who contributed their time and materials to see this project through. You can take a vitual tour by exploring our gallery of pictures below.
Look out for the Social Hub on our Northampton Timetable if you'd like to check out our community hub in person. This is our weekly drop-in session to find out more about what we have on offer through the Community Connectors. These sessions are open door and casual in nature; you can simply pop in for a chat and a cuppa.
