A new multi-charity centre will be built on Greenham Common in Berkshire to help voluntary organisations pool resources and put more money in frontline services.
The Slater Centre will be home to six charities sharing a receptionist, computers, photocopying and phone systems. A workshop for people with learning disabilities will allow charities to provide training and learning programmes for their service users.
Spread over 5,400m2, the building is being funded by the Greenham Common Trust and will house charities working in areas such as young people, disability and training and development. The charities hope the new centre will improve the working environment for staff.
Building will start in September and is expected to last 10 months.
