what we're building
Since 2018, we’ve been delivering practical training across multiple learning environments at our Teesside Hub. It's part of Tees Valley Community Church 's desire to use The Oakwood Centre (their building and land) in ways that bring the most benefit to the wider community.
Our vision has always been to sustain the training, here at The Oakwood Centre, through the creation of an Enterprise Village; a collection of community spaces and skills-based enterprises that benefit our learners, the wider community and the local economy.
To date, we've built a community garden, and began manufacturing products in our wood workshop. Over the next three years (2022-25) we hope to begin our next phase of development, creating a family trail in the woodland and increasing our capacity to build future skills through Hope Street.
