We are thrilled to announce that the National Communities Resource Centre (NCRC) at Trafford Hall
has become part of the Regenda Group.
This will allow work on restoring Trafford Hall to commence in January, with the intention that we will be ready to open by Spring 2021. NCRC will continue to operate from within Trafford Hall, helping low-income communities, frontline staff, and decisionmakers to take self-help action to tackle problems in their communities.
Our mission is unchanged: NCRC aims to close the inequality gap that exists in communities across the UK by providing training, support and resources for those people living and working in low-income neighbourhoods, to inspire a culture of problem-solving and self-help within communities. We will be working in a new, post-pandemic era. We count on you as our partners, supporters, and friends, to help us make a success of this new beginning for Trafford Hall and NCRC.
We want to thank Cheshire West and Chester Council for supporting us during the period of forced closure and Cheshire Connect for opening the door to many local supporters. We want to give our sincere thanks to Igloo Regeneration for their fantastic help at the point where we faced closure, as well as the John Laing Charitable Trust, the National Housing Federation, the Chartered Institute of Housing, and many housing associations and community groups for their support during this time.
We look forward to welcoming you to Trafford Hall in 2021. Please do get in touch if you would like to discuss how we can support your organisation, community, or group.
Sincere thanks for your support over many years.
Anne Power, Chair, National Communities and Resource Centre
