We are committed to keeping all our library branches and do not propose that any should close. Now we would like your views on how we should develop our library services, working alongside community hubs, community centres and other local activities. Have your say in our Community hub and library consultation or our separate Community hub and library consultation for under 16 year-olds.
Community hubs and community centres
Local community hubs and centres are places that support communities and help people stay independent.
They are a base for local activities and events, helping residents to:
- get support and advice
- find information
- make applications online
Hubs and centres in Thurrock
There are currently 6 hubs or centres in towns and villages across Thurrock:
- Acorns Community Hub, Stifford Clays
- Aveley Community Hub
- Chadwell St Mary Centre
- Purfleet Community Hub
- South Ockendon Centre
- Tilbury Hub
All have public access PCs that are free to use, with volunteers who can help residents to get online or access training.
Each hub or centre has its own activities and events, based on the needs of its community. Local committees decide what happens at each hub. They respond to the ideas that are suggested by local people.
Community hubs and centres across Thurrock are set-up as a partnership between local groups, voluntary organisations, and Thurrock Council.
