About Us

Community Spaces Northampton logoAt Community Spaces Northampton, we manage a number of community centres across the town, providing opportunities for activities, services and experiences that create a greater sense of connection and belonging. We put the needs of the community at the heart of everything we do in order to make a real impact for local people.

Community activities, meetings & services

Our neighbourhood level community centres are the perfect space for local people to meet and access localised services. We host a number of groups for the benefit of the community, from exercise classes, social groups & lunch clubs, to preschools and playgroups.

A number of our centres offer a weekly community hub service for local people to access services in their neighbourhood. Please contact us for more information, or to become a public sector or VCSE partner.

Corporate meeting room hire

We offer an alternative type of space for corporate meetings and events. Booking through our centres gives back to the community and delivers against your social value responsibilities. We offer just room hire or the full package, including room set up, refreshments and equipment so you can focus on the task at hand.

Private event venue hire

Whether you are looking to hire a function room in Northampton for a birthday party, wedding reception, celebration or wake, we have the room for you. Our centres provide a friendly, local space for you to host your event and make special memories.

Our story

Our journey began in 2011, when Northampton Borough Council began the process of transferring the management of community centres across the town to external operators. In response to this, we established Community Spaces Northampton with one core purpose – to ensure that community centres remained for community use. 

Our team are driven to provide the very best service for local communities and to safeguard much needed space for local people to meet, convene and connect. We have extensive expertise in the area of Community Asset Transfers and offer advice, talks and training to public sector and third sector organisations nationally.
