Kirkgate Centre

A community centre right in the heart of Shipley

The Kirkgate Centre is a busy and ambitious organisation serving Shipley.
We are a registered charity and a registered company.

Most importantly, we are a membership organisation. Members of the Kirkgate Centre own the organisation – they have the power to call meetings, elect trustees and become trustees themselves. Membership is free to anyone living in the Shipley area. Our over-arching aim is to improve the quality of life for our local community. Some of the ways we do this include:

  • encouraging and supporting our community to understand and act on the things that affect us all – both positive and negative
  • 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
  • supporting our community’s local economy
  • 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.
