The Hub Yeovil

18 Mar

Last month we went to have a look around The Hub Yeovil, a community centre in Yeovil.  We absolutely loved it there, a really inspirational, welcoming and friendly community centre.

The Hub Yeovil was set up in November 2010 by Sophie Mars and Clive Tuck.  It is a community centre for people with learning difficulties.  As well as being a great place for socialising and learning life skills, trainees learn new practical skills such as car valeting, growing plants, soap making and crafts.  A lot of the crafts use recycled products, which they obtain from the Yeovil Scrapstore, such as old clothes, magazines, books, newspapers, furniture.

Trainees use their new skills to create micro-enterprises, giving them all round skills to enable them to start their own businesses in the future, as well as giving them practical experience which will improve their employability.  The extra income that these micro-businesses bring in helps to keep the The Hub Yeovil a sustainable project.

If you are looking for an ethical gift for someone, take a look at their lovely soaps which can be purchased through their website.

They have exciting plans in the pipeline to open a shop selling the products that trainees have made, and are also looking for other ethically minded products to sell from the shop.

    Hi there outstanding blog! Does running a blog like this take a
    large amount of work? I’ve no knowledge of coding but I
    was hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyhow, if you
    have any recommendations or tips for new blog owners please
    share. I know this is off subject but I simply wanted to ask.

    Thanks a lot!
