Three Trees Family
Check our what’s on and who is here to see the full list of what happens, but we have some permanent residents at Three Trees. These are all beautiful people who bring a lot to our life here and we often work together as we have discovered that 1 + 1 = 3 when it comes to community action. Here they are in alphabetical order!
CWBC developed the church building into its current form. Recognising the need for a community for all people, without the assumptions you often get with churches and community centres, Three Trees was evolved (yes, they even do evolution!). The church has a good pedigree of community action and involvement and are delighted to still be part of the life within the centre, bringing a spiritual stream to life here for anyone, whether they are part of the church or not.
Urban Heard are on a mission! They work to build resilience in young people, working with and alongside them to build skills, raise awareness and generally help them deal with whatever life may throw at them. Using a combination of youth work and actually paying young people, they have an innovative approach that takes time and respects the people they work with and build genuine relationships.
We are proud to be the home of Entraide, Solihull’s first (and only) refugee and asylum seeker project. Founded by a local resident, Entraide provide support across the borough and into Birmingham to refugees and asylum seekers, helping them to rebuild their lives and fully integrate into society. They run homework clubs, do casework, befriending and leisure activities and also provide training (particularly around UASC). We think they’re great.
Another youth organisation, we have a Worth Unlimited Youth Worker based at the centre who runs sessions and has been developing partnerships in the area. Worth want to see young people connected into their communities and (like us) are firm believers in the local.
Another home-grown charity delivering fun, hilarity and the arts. In boring speak they are an arts based community development agency. It looks like they just mess about but amidst the fun times they bring the community together, provide support to isolated people, care to people who need it, training and advice to help people live better, healthier lives and generally make the world a better place.
