With effect from Monday 23rd March and in line with Government advice on social distancing, we have decided to temporarily close our doors to the public. This has been a very difficult decision, but one that we know is for the best, to keep everyone protected and healthy. The health and safety of the Centre, volunteers, service users and our community are our top priority.
Our doors will open as soon as possible, but until then, please keep checking in for updates. In these surreal and uncertain times, we’d like to thank you for your continued support and understanding, and for helping to keep us all safe. Stay safe, stay well, try to stay indoors and best wishes to you all.
Easington Social Welfare Centre
Based in the heart of the former mining community of Easington Colliery, the centre provided community facilities for the miners and their families. Originally built in 1929 and rebuilt after a fire in 1935, the centre still remains open providing vital facilities for its community.
Easington Social Welfare became a registered charity in July 2004 and continues to provide a facility for the community. It is managed by a committee of 12 trustees who care for the community and are intersted in long-term development of Easinton colliery.
Easington Social Welfare Centre's vision is to provide top-level community and social activities that meet the needs of our local community. we exist to attract and maintain customers. When we adhere to this maxim everything else will fall into place. Our services will exceed the expectations of our customers.
The aims for Easington Social Welfare Centre are:
- To create a service-based organisation which exceeds customers expectations.
- To grow the number of customers through superior customer service and word-of-mouth referrals.
- Educate the community on what the company has to offer.
- Build customer loyalty through superior service.
- Create an atmosphere that is fully inclusive and attractive to people of all ages, background and interests.
After many years of fundraising over £400,000 has been invested to improve the building, modernising facilities and services, with disability access to the dance hall and Information technology room. Today the centre is still open for business and provides educational training for all ages, our I,T room is proving to be a great service to young and old alike. We still provide a great venue for an evenings entertainment.
