Welcome to Communityworks!


Thank you for checking out our website!

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak and the Government’s request to avoid social contact we are suspending all our activities from Monday 23rd March 2020 - except for those who have been specifically invited into Nursery. We are still here to support the community and suggest that you phone us if you need advice and support. Nearly all our staff are working and we are looking into ways to help us all through this extremely difficult period. We are planning to open reception every week day from 9am until 10am and 12 until 12.45pm but would urge you to ring rather than come in as no-one will be seeing anyone. If you need support, for example you have run out of food then we have food vouchers which can be issued. We now have a small stock of emergency supplies of food which we can offer to those in need. Please ring 01274 200589 and we will help when we can. If no-one answers please leave a message. We have also started working in partnership with other VCS projects and Bradford Council to provide a telephone befriending scheme. If you are feeling isolated and would like the chance to talk with someone then call Bradford Council on 01274431000 and they will help you.

We will be contacting many of you as we look for ways to help you through. We intend to put ideas on Facebook and this website for those of you having to care for children. We also will try to continue to help people looking for employment and those wanting to improve their English or other skills.

We would strongly encourage you to avoid unnecessary social contact as the virus begins to spread this will become vital, if we are to avoid people being very seriously ill. We would encourage you to be good neighbours and look out for those that are isolated. If we all work together we can keep each other safe.

We will keep in touch and do ring us if you need our advice or support.

Outstanding

We are very pleased to say that our current Ofsted Inspection judgement for our Nursery is ‘Outstanding’! We still have a few places for 2 year olds eligible for a free place for Summer term 2020. We may have some places for children that are already 3 for April 2020 (Summer term). See the Nursery section to check.

If or when the Coronavirus spreads to Bradford we will review the local situation and act proportionately. In the meantime if you have any questions or want to know more go to our Useful links page and click on the information links. While on that page you will discover a variety of other useful links that might benefit you and your family.

Communityworks has a varied range of activities planned for Spring including English Classes, IT Classes and Driving Theory. We also run a group for refugee and asylum seekers called New Start and a women’s group. We have Dance On for our over 50s. We have Bradford College courses running here including Basic Skills, Sewing, Beautycare and ESOL. We also support people into employment through our Job Club and run a group for older people on Mondays and host our “Nani Tea” on Thursday afternoons. We try to have something for everyone and very much welcome new ideas!
