Hi, my name is Ray Munro-Crump. I am the project manager for Aveley Village Community Forum. This is a local group that has become a company and registered charity. We currently run a youth & community centre in our village of Aveley which is in Thurrock. The centre was set up to provide services until a new community centre was built. We have been working on this project since 2003. We are working in partnership with Thurrock Council to build a new building as part of their Community Hub Programme. we have some funding (£1m from s106 money) but we need to maximise what we have as the building was originally planned at £2.5m. We are actively fundraising but any support towards set up or establishing costs would be very helpful. Are there any aspects of this programme that would help or support what we are trying to do?
