A new support hub for adults has opened as part of North Lincolnshire Council’s £5m community investment programme.

Ashby One will support adults with complex needs and learning disabilities, providing support for people from across the area.

Cllr Rob Waltham, leader for North Lincolnshire Council, said: “It is great to see this latest development of the community investment scheme come to life – I am sure it will become a hive of activity for people from across the town.

“Our aspiration is that the hubs will be led by the needs of the individual communities. The spaces have been designed to be adaptable to enable local groups to develop and expand. This will ultimately improve people’s quality of life.”

The centre, which is in the grounds of the recently transformed Ashby Community Hub, has now officially opened its doors.

People who attend Ashby One will be able to take advantage of the wider support available from the Community Hub and the outdoor area which has been designed by a specialist team from Normanby Hall Country Park.

The multi-million pound community investment scheme has seen community hubs also developed at Baysgarth in Barton-upon-Humber, Scunthorpe Central, Crowle’s beautiful Market Hall and the Angel in Brigg.

This latest investment comes alongside substantial Government backing to support North Lincolnshire to bounce back from Covid-19.

The council’s transformation plans for Scunthorpe received the green light in the Chancellor’s budget, with investment focused on creating a new future for the town centre and creating thousands of new, well-paid, sustainable jobs.
