About Us

BACKGROUND

 

Raploch Community Partnership is a local, independent charity and company limited by guarantee. We are a community led organisation focussing on the economic and social regeneration of Raploch and the wider Stirling area.

 

We aim to help the people and organisations of the area to realise their potential through their activity, work and incomes. We want a thriving prosperous community and for that prosperity to be sustainable - with economic wellbeing enhancing social wellbeing and quality of life.

 

Our base is in the Raploch Community Campus, Drip Road, Stirling. These modern new premises host a diverse range of Council and Community Services including a local Library, Employability and Active Stirling leisure facilities. The Campus also accommodates three primary schools and a nursery.

 

We are proudly funded by (2017), Scottish Government (People & Communities Fund); Robertson Trust; SCVO (Community Capacity & Resilience Fund); Voluntary Action Fund (Social Isolation Fund) and Stirling Council (Challenge Fund).

THE COMMUNITY HUB

 

Physically, the hub is a suite of office and learning spaces equipped with computers and printing facilities within the Raploch Community Campus. Beyond the physical space and equipment, the Community Hub aims to enable all members of the community to meet in an informal, social atmosphere to gain access to information and services for the purposes of learning, recreation and employment in order to improve health, wellbeing and wealth.

 

We recruit and mentor workers, volunteer and peer facilitators from the local, and wider, community to help deliver services that enables positive and progressive lifestyles. There will be opportunities to gain recreational and work-orientated experience in our community garden and enterprise projects. Direct delivery of information, services and opportunities will be part facilitated through intergenerational projects that involve employment experience, local history and creative writing.

 

Our volunteers provide additional support and expertise for the project. Staff, workers and volunteers will also refer members to the services of partners such as Stirling Council (Communities Team, Adult Learning Team); Forth Valley College; Citizens’ Advice Bureau; Stirling Community Enterprise and other partners to achieve our corporate aims and benefit our members.
