Community Campus is a community based social enterprise formed in 1987 to address the emerging crises of youth homelessness. Our work and development have now taken us further, we now have developed a range of holistic person centered innovative projects and services for young homeless and for other economically and socially disadvantaged people.
We provide more than a roof; we provide affordable housing, support and resettlement services, personal development, learning and training opportunities, construction training and building services, regeneration and development services.
Community Campus is a value driven organisation committed to meeting its social,economic and environmental objectives. We respect and value people, challenge social injustice. We are person centered, accessible and empower people and always aim to have a positive impact. We believe that people and communities fundamentally have within them the solution to their own problems.

1) Providing affordable housing support and resettlement services
Community Campus 87 provides affordable housing support and resettlement services, as well as personal development and learning and training opportunities.
We aim to create opportunities, empowering people to realise their potential to build towards a better life. We achieve this by leasing and purchasing property for renovation to create homes for those in need.
2) Reinvesting income to develop services
We house 105 tenants across 65 houses. All the rental income is ploughed back into the business operation to further develop the organisation.
In 2015 we renovated a further 10 houses, creating 20 training opportunities including 5 apprentices - this created 15 bedspaces for homeless people.
3) Providing training and development opportunities
We not only provide a roof over peoples heads - we have also developed training and development opportunities in the developmental process, and volunteer opportunities in areas like running a lunch club/construction activities/addressing social isolation. This builds confidence self esteem and helps young people at the margins of society get back on track.
