Our Partner Kirklees Library Services
Kirklees Library Services have been a staunch supporter since we started our project. One of our key principles has been to retain this partnership.
In return for our providing the community building and library volunteers, they provide:
- training and updating of our library volunteers, in a range of library procedures
- a paid member of library staff for 17 hours a week
- on-going access to the full range of library services. Click to learn more about our library services
Our Partner Kirkwood Hospice
Kirkwood Hospice has supported our project since the early days and, alongside Kirklees Library Services, is our other strategic partner.
Kirkwood Hospice provides palliative and end-of-life care for thousands of patients in Kirklees. They already run a successful charity shop in our village and now, in addition, run a gift shop and café in our community building. These services will raise further funds to support Kirkwood Hospice’s work, whilst the rental income will contribute significantly to meeting our running costs.
