Find out more about the Hounslow Community Resource Centre Project
Hounslow Council has commissioned CAN and Red Ochre to explore the concept of creating a new multi-agency Resource Centre – a building where third sector organisations can locate, meet and share offices and resources.
What is a Resource Centre?
A multipurpose Community Resource Centre could offer a range of facilities and services such as:
- office space, hot-desking, and virtual office solutions
- venue and equipment hire for meetings, training, counselling and conferences
- back office, business advisory and IT services
- shared resources E.g. printing & franking
- training, networking, volunteering and collaborative working opportunities
- information exchange and signposting
- direct services E.g. advocacy, legal and financial advice, nursery
How do I get involved?
If you are an organisation working, or delivering services, in the London Borough of Hounslow, we would like your responses to directly inform the feasibility study of the development of a Resource Centre in the borough of Hounslow and the Council’s decisions on the sort of premises required to meet the needs of third sector organisations. Tell us about your premises requirements and register your interest in being involved with the Hounslow Community Resource Centre project.
