About us

Southgate Community Centre was handed over from St Edmundsbury Borough Council to the people of Southgate in October 2011.  The Centre is now run for the community by the Southgate Community Partnership (SCP), which is a group of trustees made up of four representatives each from the Southgate Church and from the wider community, as well as a representative from both Suffolk County Council (Cllr Sarah Stamp) and St Edmundsbury Borough Council (Cllr Patrick Chung).  

Taking over the building means that the SCP is responsible for its upkeep, but has also been able to take the Centre in new directions. The SCP is both a registered charity and a limited company, and is supported by the Friends of Southgate group, which is a group open to anyone who is living in the community or who has a specific interest in the Centre.  Membership is free and membership forms are available from the Centre.
