Purpose Two To establish or to secure the establishment of a Community Centre and to maintain and manage or to co-operate with any local statutory authority in the maintenance and management of such a centre for activities promoted by the Association and its constituent bodies in furtherance of the above projects. The direct benefit which flows from this purpose is the provision of a Community Centre leased from NIHE. This community centre is in a central location within the estate and is seen as a neutral and shared space. This is demonstrated through the provision of a community kitchen, main hall, games room, computer suite and staff offices which are fully accessible to all service users. The facility was originally stand alone with the staff offices in a separate property. However, two of the flats overhead have been secured for office space and we are in the process of carrying out a full renovation of the whole building to further improve the facility. The beneficiaries of this purpose are all local residents who engage in our wide range of programmes and services. A private benefit to trustees may arise from gaining experience in the maintenance and management of a community facility. These benefits are incidental and necessary to ensure the benefit is provided to our beneficiaries.
