Raising funds for a volunteer training programme in sustainable construction to build a community owned Eco-Bothy in the old barn at Bridgend Farmhouse
Winners of Voluntary Arts Scotland Epic Awards 2020; https://www.voluntaryarts.org/epic-awards-2020-winners-announced
Bridgend Farmhouse community hub is owned and run by its community of members. It consists of the farmhouse with training kitchen and café, admin and gallery/event space, and four new-build workshops. It is a thriving centre and social enterprise, for learning, eating and exercise with the aim of developing a flourishing community and place.
We strive to nurture the values of being welcoming, people power, care and justice, enabling, creativity and belonging, in all that we do. Democratic structures consist of a Board of Trustees, four working sub-groups and members’ forums. We work to address social inequalities, to equip adults and young people with skills, to reduce isolation and loneliness, to strengthen community involvement, to build local resilience and strive to achieve social and environmental justice.
Our overall aim is to enable local people, to live healthy, connected and satisfying lives.
