Our Big Build

About the big move...

We have recently sent letters out to all of our customers, regarding our big and exciting news. There is a copy of this letter here.


We are writing to inform you of the new and exciting opportunities that are happening here at Charter House.
Firstly, we would like to thank you all for your continuing help and support that you have given us over the last eight years that we have been open. Throughout these years we have had an ever-increasing growth and popular demand of our services, as a result of this we have outgrown our current building on Saunder Bank. Here is where the exciting news comes in… 
For over 12 months we have been working closely with Lancashire county council to secure the use of Brunshaw Youth Club, through Lancashire county councils asset transfer service, this allows Charter House to take ownership of a building, to provide and extend our services for at least the next 125 years.
As stated on Lancashire County council’s website, “On 7 December, the cabinet agreed in principle the asset transfer of Brunshaw Young People's Centre in Burnley. The group is proposing to move its current service, Charter House Activity Centre, into the young people's centre to continue providing a range of services”.
On taking ownership of the premises, Charter House will invest over £50,000 within the next 12 months, making alterations to the new building to maintain our level of service, creating a large new sensory room and a larger activity area providing more services. We have been working alongside “The Big Issue investment”, “The Reach Fund” and are also awaiting a lottery grant. We estimate that the move will take no longer than 2-4 months, we assure our members that our services will continue with no disruption to the day to day activities. 
Our aim is to work with local businesses and companies in the community asking them to donate materials, or time to renovate the building, supporting their local community in providing and improving much needed services. If you know of any services or organisations that would like to get involved please get in touch.
We are also launching a clothing recycling project, if anyone has any unwanted clothing, please donate these to Charter House. We will keep you up-to-date with any developments as soon as we are aware of any news.   
Thank you once again for your continuing support.

Kind regards, Manager,
Jason Smith.
