The Springfield Centre

Our mission is to provide the space and opportunity for inclusive recreational, educational, cultural, work readiness, sporting programmes and services to improve the physical, mental and emotional health and well-being of children and young people living in and around the BD10/2 areas of Bradford.

The St Hugh's Centre

The St Hugh’s Centre is a community centre offering adult education, hobby and social groups, as well as child services, for residents of the lower Baildon area. We run regular beginners' computer classes and courses in subjects like craft, cookery, family history, languages and digital photography. We have indoor bowling, the Oasis Friendship Café, yoga, bingo, art classes, karate and a weekly toddler group. We offer a venue for community inclusion and consultation: councilors’ surgeries, neighbourhood forums, local and national elections, community campaign meetings. We run a food bank to help alleviate food poverty issues in our local community, resourced by donations from our three churches and other groups.

The Centre is involved in active partnerships and links with other suitable organisations: Bradford Council, Shipley Area Co-ordinator’s Office, Baildon Children’s Centre, Baildon Link, local Ward Councilors, Police. Various types of funding are accessed to make the Centre self-sufficient: contract funding (government funded adult education), grants (e.g. Shipley Council, Mechanics Institute, Parish Council, Bradford Met) and income generated from private room hire. Small charges to Users also generate income but all activities are subsidised from other funding to make it affordable for all.
The Centre was set up by The Church of England’s Parish of Baildon in 1993 as a response to the deprivation which is prominent in this part of Baildon. Although Baildon is often viewed as an affluent area, there are several areas of real disadvantage. The Coach Road area is one of these and statistics show higher levels (than the national average) of unemployment, drug and alcohol dependency, single parent families and families living in poverty. The Centre employs one part-time Community Development Worker who oversees the day-to-day running of the Centre, organises the activities and sources funding. A body of volunteers runs groups and helps with fund-raising fairs. The Centre is overseen by a Management Committee who, in turn, report to the PCC.

The Swan Song Project

The Swan Song Project is a registered charity that helps people celebrate life though song. We work with people facing the end of their lives as well as their loved ones to write and record their own original song. Music is so powerful and can help us through the good and bad times of life right up until the end. The songs then live on providing comfort and happy memories to loved ones for years to come, hopefully providing some relief through the grieving process.
