Capacity Buildings is a Cleethorpes based Social Enterprise supporting voluntary and community groups and residents in North East Lincolnshire


Through our Community Hub in Cleethorpes and using practical support and development, we’re helping people across North East Lincolnshire thrive.





What are we about?

The overall aim of Capacity Buildings Limited is to enhance the capability of voluntary and community groups and social enterprises in North East Lincolnshire to deliver their  services across the borough through the provision of managed workspace with attached supportive infrastructure. 

We offer both virtual support and a community ‘micro-hub’ where small informal groups of residents can access practical support alongside other resources required to grow and develop whatever community endeavours they are interested in. 

Together with this, the company aims to encourage economic development and enterprise growth within the local community and across North East Lincolnshire by delivering its services in local communities such as Cleethorpes for the direct benefit of its residents.

Francis Willmer McAulay Memorial Cottages Charity – new resident needed…

We have a vacancy for a single resident or a couple in one of our alms-houses in Aylesby.

Our cottages offer accommodation for retired persons of good character and on low income who live in Aylesby or surrounding villages.

Preference will be given to applicants who have been employed in rural industries or agriculture who have lived in the area for a number of years.

Two referees will also be needed to vouch for good character and meeting our terms of residency.

Please contact Richard Wendel-Jones at Capacity Buildings Limited, 82 Grimsby Road, Cleethorpes, North East Lincolnshire, DN35 7DP by post

or by email: or telephone: 01472 240707 for more information and/or an application form.


Capacity Buildings successfully completed its Hidden Gems project supporting 20 people to find pathways back into learning and paid work. Supported by funding from the Community Fund we enabled people aged over 50 who had been unemployed and experiencing long-term medical conditions find their confidence to achieve learning qualifications and do voluntary work. With new and updated skills and qualifications they were then able to secure paid work or sign up to longer term education courses, which were all very rewarding outcomes.

We recently secured a North East Lincolnshire Heritage Starter Fund project Capturing Cleethorpes Cultures to enable us to engage with Cleethorpes’ residents to find out about traditions and customs that are important to them as part of local historical cultural events or linked to specific local buildings or places in the resort. We will capture residents’ memories and create new ones for future generations to shape and re-enact. We will involve Cleethorpes residents in all aspects of our project from research and planning through delivery to evaluation.
