What’s the vision?
As Trustees we want to help to create a space that is for the community by the community.
We want the house and garden to be a place where people of all ages feel welcome, and gain a sense of belonging and purpose. A place to ‘breathe’ and make time for one another in a world which can feel stressful and a bit lonely at times.
Every charity has to have key objectives (main purposes for why we’re here). You can find out about ours below…
People from the local community have already come up with loads of exciting ways the space could be used. If you have ideas which fit into the purposes of DLCA, we’d love to explore them with you!
The Dads Lane Community Association, Charity Nr 1187905.
The key things which drive why we do what we do…
To promote the wellbeing of residents, without distinction, in the Stirchley/Hazelwell/Kings Heath area of Birmingham.
To work with others to improve all aspects of life (social, mental, physical, spiritual and educational) and to foster community spirit for the achievement of these and other charitable objects.
To operate a community facility in furtherance of the charitable objects.
We’re a community building with community projects for the community by the community.
(It’s about ‘community’… you get the picture.)
We are currently involved in an ambitious renovation project to bring the centre back into use.
For this we need money and people. Can you help?
Meet some amazing volunteers!
Whether you’ve got a few hours or a few days, we can find something for you to do.
