Has been a staunch supporter since we started our project. One of our key aims has been, and still is, to retain this partnership.

In return for our providing the community building and library volunteers, Kirklees Library Service provides:

  • 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

Kirkwood Hospice

Kirkwood Hospice

Has also 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 the gift shop and café in our community building.


Using their services will raise further funds to support Kirkwood Hospice’s work, whilst the rental income they pay us contributes significantly to meeting our running costs.
