Through education and learning, we hope to create opportunities for local people to get back to work, for young people to have support after school and to encourage a low carbon lifestyle amongst residents through the roll out of the Green Travel Plan. We also report back on the year-long Graylingwell Heritage Project.
We run a term-time Homework Café that oﬀers young people the chance to complete their school (or other) work with support and great equipment. Wi-Fi, laptops, printers, and plenty of other resources are available, and drinks and snacks are provided. Best of all, it’s absolutely FREE! The atmosphere is relaxed and a teacher and support assistant are available to oﬀer one-to-one support.

This project was indicative of what a community-owned and led organisation can achieve, and points to a very exciting future for the Trust.
