All Pulling Together
All Pulling Together Community Interest (Company No 10707750)
We were officially opened in March 2011 and are based in Park Parade, Stonehouse to provide information and support for the Park Estate. Over the years we have grown as an organisation and now cover the whole of the GL10 area. We provide a venue for a wide variety of community activities including:
- Guitar group
- Craft sessions
- Book Club
- Maths & English classes
- Children’s Garden Gang
Originally funded by the lottery we are now financially supported by the Gloucester Services via the Gloucestershire Gateway Trust and Stroud District Council and are a member of eight partner organisations across the county supporting our communities.
We have weekly drop in sessions for people to be able to access: CAB; P3; and GL Communities giving advice on the following:
- Universal Credit
- Job search
We also provide phone and laptop use and our priorities are to:
- Support our community by providing activities required by residents.
- Build on the local self-help ethos to help local change and raise local aspirations.
- Improve the delivery of community services by increasing the number of volunteers locally, using their skills and providing tailored training courses.
- Provide food via the Neighbourly scheme to use close to date food from local supermarkets to support our community and local Food Bank.
APT Central is the home of the All Pulling Together (APT) Community Interest Company. They also host within their building a number of local community and statutory organisations.
Together with APT they work to improve the quality of life on the Park Estate and within the whole of Stonehouse. At the heart of the organisation are a team of dedicated local volunteers who work together to support new services and activities such as local play programmes, fun days and new courses based on local residents suggestions.
