About The Arc


Questions from local residents:

Who runs The Arc Community Hub?

The Arc is run by ‘The Grange Park Centre Charity’ – the original name for the small group of local residents who came together to fundraise and deliver this amazing community resource. The Sponsors who made this possible can be found here. The Charity is led by a group of volunteer Trustees along with a small number of paid employees. Income raised by room hire is used to cover running costs, and to host a number of community groups such as Little Stars Baby and Toddler Group, The Arc Over 60s exercise group etc. Learn more about the Our Vision here and the Journey here. Information about the Charity (Registered Charity 1157806) can also be found on the Charity Commission’s website here. There are lots of opportunities to join the team or volunteer in specific areas of interest – please contact enquiries@arc-hub.org.uk for further information.
