History

Cortonwood Comeback Community Centre (CCCC) was established in 1987 by members of the local community who recognised the need to tackle the problems of unemployment, exclusion and disadvantage in Brampton Bierlow and surrounding areas in the aftermath of the miners strike.

 

Aims
The Centre aims to help overcome the inequalities and lack of access to services that have a direct impact on the lives of the elderly, young people, and those on low incomes. We aim to advance education and provide facilities for recreation and leisure time, with the objective of improving people's quality of life

 

How we're run
Providing a community service that's needs-led, we adapt services to the needs of the community at any given time. We work in partnership with organisations like Safer Neighbourhood Team, RMBC Youth Service, Elected Members, Rotherham Learning Communities, Workers Education Association and Next Steps. The Centre has no funding from the government or from the local authority. All running costs are met through room hire, community galas and other such fundraising events.

 

Volunteering
Our Centre has always been run and managed by volunteers. Throughout its history it has never had a paid manager and to this day it is still managed by volunteers who give their time and expertise freely at no cost to the Charity or the community. We are always seeking new volunteers and help in running and managing the building and raising funds. Volunteers are the backbone of our centre so if you are interested in volunteering, please contact us or drop in.
