What We Do
Kirgate Centre

The Kirkgate Centre is a busy community and social action centre serving Shipley.
We are a registered charity and a registered company.

Most importantly, we are a membership organisation. Members of the Kirkgate Centre run the centre and have the power to call meetings, elect trustees and become trustees themselves. Membership is free to anyone living in the Shipley area.

Our aim is to improve the quality of life for our local community. We do this by:
• encouraging and supporting our community to identify and address its priorities • strengthening our sense of community
• developing the confidence a skills in our community to challenge what we don’t like and create more of what we do
• developing and improving sustainable resources run by and for our community
• directly supporting those most vulnerable and in need

We also recognise that a strong Shipley community needs a strong local economy, and support community organisations and local people setting up local trading projects and business ideas.
