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.
Our Current Projects
We deliver projects, programmes and initiatives supporting our community.
Headlines and latest news
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.
