About Us

St. Bride’s isn’t your average community facility.

It’s owned and managed by Douglas St. Bride’s Community Group (DSCG), a hardy band of eager volunteers who steward the place on behalf of the local community. We think that gives us - and you - an advantage because being community owned and managed allows us to be incredibly flexible and creative.

Nothing stands still for long at St. Bride’s. If we’re not planning a major redevelopment or facilitating your special occasion, we’ll be piloting activity programmes and running events which ensure we get the best from our building. We’re not about bricks and mortar really… we’re about providing high quality opportunities, raising expectations and generally being the beating heart of all that goes on around here.  

DSCG is a Company Limited by Guarantee with Charitable Status. Our governing document is our Memorandum and Articles of Association. This structure gives us a degree of legal protection as well as some of the benefits of operating as a charity. We report to Companies House and to OSCR annually. We have a Board of Directors which is elected from our expanding membership base annually. Our Directors are all local volunteers committed to maximising the potential of St. Bride’s. 

We have our own staff compliment as well as three Facility Assistants sponsored by the Local Authority.
