The Hub

The Big Local Broad Green Hub is our greatest achievement to date. Local residents identified the need for community space in the area, so in partnership with Centrale the Broad Green Hub was opened on Keeley Road in July 2019.

Since we opened hundreds of people have visited for a wide range of activities and events, including art classes, learning disability activities, group exercise, employment coaching, job clubs, youth work, parenting classes, personal development courses, clothes recycling, business networking, tutoring, and much much more.

Although due to Covid-19 we were not able to run group events in the Hub for some time, despite the restrictions it continued to play an essential role in the local community operating as a food bank, and offering a telephone befriending service.

As Covid-19 restrictions begin to ease we would like to invite you to join us once again. We are allowing groups to enter and observe all current Government Guidelines on indoor protocol and mixed groups.  Latest government guidelines can can be viewed here. The calendar will likely fill up quickly so please get in touch if you would like to book the space as soon as you can.

To book your event at the hub please contact:  Richard, Hub Manager at Richard.Tait@biglocalbroadgreen.co.uk or 07914 677 179
