House Groups

Groups at the House

Since our inception, we have a strong commitment to supporting and partnering with local groups who add value to our community. Our partnerships with these groups have both formal and informal structures. Some of these groups use our rooms and resources for their meetings and others receive administrative or financial support. We often work with our House groups to deliver project and events.
