Changing attitudes to, and improving the lives of, ex-detainees and migrant communities

The Folkestone Road Hub, a weekly community group, takes place in Priory Ward to support families and young people. It is attended by a variety of local residents but its primary users are of Roma origin. It provides a meeting place for local residents and allows local service providers to build strong relationships with hard to reach community members.

It provides a varied package of community activities which help develop community members’ health and well-being, safety and security and sense of community belonging. Regular attendees at the hub include local PCSOs, Health Trainers, the Kent Fire Service, Early Years Provision and Youth Services as well as local community and voluntary groups. Kent Fire and Rescue and Kent Police value the
access provided to safety messages and youth activities for migrant communities.

The Community Hub runs every Thursday  between 5.30pm-7.30pm (excluding school holidays) at Clarendon and Westbury Hall, Belgrave Road, Dover, CT17PRA
