Maybole Resource Centre

Maybole Resource Centre closed at the end of April 2007.

A community based project funded by the Big lottery until May 2007. The project is run by May-Tag Ltd and has an Advisory Committee drawn from members of local community groups.

The main aim of the project is to support local community groups to be willing and able to take responsibility for their own and the community’s future development.

The method of helping the groups meet this aim is to provide a

local resource, Maybole Resource Centre, which has meeting space for groups, trained staff to help them identify and develop individual and group potential by offering free appropriate training, services and advice.

Short Courses

The Centre has run or is currently offering the following short courses

Members of the public who are in community groups can attend free of charge. Other courses being considered if funding is available are Health & Safety, Basic First Aid and
Guidelines for Protection of Children and Vulnerable Adults.

Just what you need...

The Centre ran two large Community Conferences to consult the public about the services on offer and their usefulness, to gain feedback of any further support required, and to offer appropriate basic information in short hour sessions e.g. insurance cover,
protecting children and vulnerable adults, funding resources, getting volunteers, other agencies support functions.

Extending Our Assistance!

Last year the Centre won funding for a similar type project to be extended to the rural villages of Crosshill, Kirkmichael, Dunure, Straiton, Kirkoswald, Dailly and Maidens.
This project is administered from the Centre’s offices at 48/50 High Street, Maybole.

To date the Centre has helped over 40 groups to gain funding and currently has two very large projects serving the whole community being prepared as well as half a dozen others being worked on to gain funding for specific community groups.
