The Earley CResCent is a community resource centre designed to meet the needs of voluntary and community organisations and local people. CResCent is a welcoming voluntary organisation, which provides access to high-quality facilities, which include training, information helpdesk, room hire and a coffee bar.
The Earley Crescent Community Association is a membership organisation, which was formed in 1998 to build a Resource Centre funded by charitable donations.
The Association became a registered charity in December 1998 and subsequently in June 2002, became a Charitable Company Limited by Guarantee.
The Earley Crescent Community Resource Centre was opened in January 2003 to provide for the needs of voluntary and community organisations, and the local residents of Earley and the surrounding area.
The centre is governed by a Board of Trustees, all of whom are local people and many who have been involved since the beginning, and has a large staff team of volunteers.
The building was designed to allow for flexible use, to respond to the requirements of community support and development. The success of the centre has grown through many partnerships and provides a focal point for the community, where is facilitates many of its activities, training and information provision.
