The Selby Trust was set up as a charity in 1992 by local people who recognised the need for a multi-purpose centre led by the community and third sector organisations. The Centre is based in Tottenham, in former school premises which the Trust manages as a multi-purpose community and social enterprise centre. The site is over 150,000 square feet, with offices, meeting rooms, training facilities, sports and events halls and a large car park.
COMMUNITY ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT, ENVIRONMENTAL DEVELOPMENT AND SAFETY
The Selby Trust is a social action centre that hosts a range of social enterprises under one roof that offer social & economic benefits, whilst generating their own income e.g. hire of halls and facilities, wood recycling, community energy lab and community gardening. They have supported over 100 micro businesses, including employment support groups, disabled led organisations and creative entrepreneurs many of whom have become established at the Selby Centre. Through social enterprise, they are transforming 1960s premises into a “green hub” – with thecommunityenergylab.com
As an Advocate member of the RetrofitWorks cooperative, The Selby Trust is trusted to recommend householders to the cooperative, and is also able to work with other members of the cooperative to help transform the local community in Tottenham, through using local, quality assured tradespeople, to renovate local housing and commercial building stock – two central goals of the trust.
“We are delighted to work with RetrofitWorks to recommend their services to our local community, and their Practitioner and Advocate membership provide a trusted network of dedicated professionals and communities that share our vision of locally provided retrofit services.” – Abigail Stevenson, The Selby Trust
