Penzance-based Trelya are using the Shared Prosperity Fund to create a Community Skills Hub at their Lescudjack Centre headquarters in the town.

The three-part project will include:

  1. Capital works to remodel part of the centre to create a new floor with learning rooms, recording studio and IT equipment as part of the new Gul (which is the Cornish word for ‘create’) Community Skills Hub.
  2. The Gul Skills Project equips local people with basic skills to help them move towards living wage employment or further education and training. This includes intensive support with Maths, English, and digital skills, vocational qualifications, life skills and health and wellbeing support.
  3. Gul Skills Café which delivers skills and training through the centre’s new community café and kitchen. This prepares people for work in the hospitality and catering industry, which is experiencing severe skills shortages.
