Why are we regenerating?

  • Uptake in services. Demand for our services is growing and we are struggling to meet the needs of the community with the space available to us. Our advice services are delivered in rooms that aren’t fit for purpose offering little privacy in cramped conditions. Through redeveloping we will not only meet current and future demand but deliver services that provide appropriate and high quality support.

  • A fresh approach. Creating more space will allow us to extend our reach and influence; to drive forward our ambitions of pioneering new solutions to social problems, to become increasingly creative in how we develop ideas and engage with the community and more successful in finding new solutions to chronic problems.

  • Investment in the future. Investing in our physical environment will give us the financial security we need to advance in other areas; funding services that are crucial but that no one else wants to invest in, piloting new projects, developing new approaches and ensuring that all sectors of our community are supported.

  • Strengthening our community ties. Building on the sense of place that Toynbee Hall has created within the community over the last 130 years, we plan to further develop our environment to create accessible public spaces. This will allow us to increase engagement with the community and create additional opportunities for learning, education and volunteering.

  • Preserving and sharing our heritage. The conservation work on our Grade II listed historical hall will preserve and share our heritage for future generations. We will be able to truly showcase the landmark stories of reform and action from Toynbee Hall that span our 130 year history.
