Wecock Community Association was formed in 1977 and has been serving the needs of the local community ever since. The association is run by a team of trustees with a broad range of skills and experiences, who are all unpaid volunteers wanting to support the local community. The centre also has a number of paid staff to support the volunteers and ensure the smooth day-to-day running of the centre.
We were lucky enough to have a new centre built and equipped as part of the area’s regeneration project in 2004. We have ample free on-site parking.
The centre is located to the west of Cowplain and is well located just a short distance from the busy town centre and on the main bus route from Portsmouth. It boasts a large number of rooms of varying sizes, from a hall with a capacity of 300 people to a meeting room that can seat just a few people. The centre also boasts a whole host of modern features, facilities and packages to take the hassle out of your event.
We pride ourselves on the accessibility of the centre for people with disabilities and take our responsibilities under ‘The Disability Discrimination Act’ seriously. Not only is there ample disabled parking at the front of the centre, we also have an induction loop at the reception desk, a split level counter, wide access doors, disabled toilet facilities and all facilities are level access on the ground floor. Our staff are also trained in how to recognise disabilities and their requirements and how to assist people with disabilities.
We are able to cater for a wide range of needs and are happy to tailor our service to your requirements, from a vegetarian meal to someone to meet your guests and welcome them. Just give us a call and we are happy to discuss your requirements and do our best to accommodate them.
