Lift Up – Lostwithiel Community Centre Facilities Upgrade

Lift Up – Lostwithiel Community Centre Facilities Upgrade

Lead Organisation: Lostwithiel Community Association

Investment Priority: Community and Place

Fund: Community Capacity Fund

SPF awarded (£): £15,840

Location: Lostwithiel

Funding will be used to commission architects’ drawings and plans for the redesign and modernisation (to RIBA 4) of this much loved and well used community building. A building survey in May 2022 by a Chartered Building Surveyor identified both external and internal building fabric requires attention due to age, wear and tear, weather damage, vandalism and to meet modern safety standards.

Key aims are to:

  • Improve energy efficiency by replacing the ceiling, re-lagging the roof void, replacing all wooden frame single glazed windows and wooden entry doors
  • Redesign entrances to be accessible
  • Reimagine the internal space to radically improve the existing site layout providing significantly greater flexibility, providing more classes, with extended electrical services enabling delivery of digital and online teaching services.
  • Install a small lift for disabled access to the first floor classrooms

What we wish to achieve is:

Lift Up is our £1m project to modernise the 40-year-old Lostwithiel Community Centre (LCC) improving energy efficiency, access throughout and provide much needed new classes for digital, literacy and numeracy for both the community and hinterland, creating new jobs, emboldening life skills, creating opportunities for all ages, genders, religions, and capabilities.
