About Onsite Building Trust
Real change only happens when people make a genuine connection. Local communities are the bedrock of our society. We make it possible for local people to come together, to empower themselves, to share passions and interests, supporting one another and helping those who need it most.
Onsite Building Trust encourages and supports community-oriented actions, groups and social enterprises.
Onsite Building Trust came into existence when Stockton-On-Tees Borough Council was struggling to maintain community services and facilities across the area. In 2012, Catalyst Stockton launched a project as part of a Transforming Local Infrastructure Funding programme, to find a way for the Council to reduce the cost of community outreach whilst safeguarding the community centres.
Onsite Building Trust, the private limited company and charity founded in October 2013 was that solution; becoming fully operational with four community centres transferred to us from the Council in April 2014. Since then, we have taken over three more centres and are looking to grow. We are lucky enough to work with a passionate team supporting out goals, customers and the needs of the communities we server.
