What Is ‘The HUB’?
The Hub is a managed resource centre for the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) sector in the heart of Stafford, providing affordable office accommodation and meeting space with a communal atmosphere where organisations can become part of a community.
Taken on by VAST in 2014, the former County Council Finance Building was extensively renovated, opening to its first tenants in October 2014 and has gone from strength to strength ever since.
Our Aims & Objectives
By providing a wide range of support functions in one place, and providing resident organisations with affordable, high-quality accommodation, we can help:
1. Ensure the development of robust, sustainable organisations through direct access to VAST’s development support and professional services
2. Create an environment that fosters closer collaboration between VCS organisations with complimentary aims or similar client groups
Service users of resident organisations can access a wide range of services under one roof
3. Reduce VCS organisations operating costs by allowing back office functions to be shared and delivered from a central point i.e. payroll, accountancy, administration
4. Increase opportunities for bulk purchase of office consumables, representing greater value for money for all involved
