Chester le Street Town FC Community Hub
The club are in need of adequate changing rooms for users of their Multi Use Games Area for a number of years. They currently have a portable building as a club house, in which users get changed. Building a permanent home is no longer a dream but essential to the club’s survival
4 months from start date
Charity information: Chester-le-street Town Football Club
Users of our outdoor 3G Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) have to change in a portable building without adequate changing or washing facilities , which means they have to attend a session with their training kit on. After the session they have nowhere to change their kit into dry kit, or appropriate footwear - if it has been raining they go home in wet equipment. The users are unable to socialise effectively in the clubhouse due to being in training equipment
Constructing changing rooms integrated into a new clubhouse will allow user groups to attend the facility in dry equipment and change into appropriate equipment for use on the MUGA then re change afterwards They could then utilise clubhouse facilities to engage socially and have interaction with other user groups and members
User groups include Children , Adults with Learning Difficulties, Male and female adults
To provide adequate changing and washing facilities within a new clubhouse development
Activities» Construct two changing rooms with changing and washing facilities
What success will look like
New facilities constructed incorporating changing rooms
This will allow user groups to change prior to and after sessions on out adjacent MUGA , they will have clean and dry clothes and shoes in which to change It will enable our Adult with Learning Difficulty Group the opportunity to attend more regularly when currently inclement weather situations tend to discourage them from attending
It will allow user groups the opportunity to then socialise in the clubhouse and assist them to be more social interactive in society
Then main risk is that insufficient funds delay construction - however additional funding routes are being sought
All user groups complete attendance documentation - attendance date will be available to show increased participation
Budget - Project Cost: £25,000Loading graph....
Amount Heading Description £25,000 changing holding 25 sessions per week for children aged 5 - 16
The club is located on the site of a former coal industry recreation field and is in much need of improvements to engage with the local community and the larger surrounding town. The improved facilities will enable and encourage a wider range of people of varying ages and abilities of both genders as well as disadvantaged groups to engage in activities beneficial to their well being and to forge links that will encourage more young people to engage in grassroots sport
Children from Age 5 -18, Adults , Adults with Learning Difficulties , and Adults over 55 - 75 all who use the facility to undertake physical activity to increase health and well being and who if, due to a lack of mobility or for other reasons , are not able to play traditional activities. The club are well positioned to grow further and an opportunity for club and community to grow and to nurture young people in a friendly environment
For many years the football club has actively allowed the use of the club's facilities for the benefit of users of the other accommodation provided by our organisation in Chester Moor and the residents of that community and the surrounding district. We see that the proposed development will enable additional activities to be undertaken at the complex and provide a base that all the local and wider community could utilise.
