The benefits of your local community centre

A community centre is a public location in which members of a specific community can come together as a group to enjoy group activities, social support, public information and many other purposes that will with enrich the lives of citizens.

Community centres are generally open for the whole community or for a specialised group within the community, for example a Christian community centre, an Islamic community centre, a Jewish community centre or for various youth-related projects.

Many of the community centres across the UK have their own building in which these activities are based, however one can be based in a school or alternatively in a church.
