We’re so much more than a set of keys…

Heart of the Community

We deliver a programme of support through our charity Reviving the Heart of the West End which is also based within John Buddle Work Village. The charity was registered in 2002 with a mission to raise aspirations of local people in Newcastle with tailored support, workshops and interventions.

We provide practical support to help people ‘Explore’ their passion, skills and knowledge to identify personal and professional goals, ‘Start’ taking steps toward employment, self-employment, starting a business, accessing training, volunteering or work experience, or ‘Grow’ an existing business or enterprise. We work closely with our extensive network of partner organisations. This could include work experience, peer mentoring, volunteering, training, and skills-based learning. Our Explore, Start, Grow strategy was developed as a result of community voice. It includes programmes that raise aspiration, improve confidence, and help remove barriers.

Our vision is a thriving community creating new enterprises, employment, businesses and training opportunities that benefit the whole community in Newcastle’s West End.

Our Ethos

We’re more than just a set of keys… we go above and beyond simply providing you with a space for your business.

What makes us smart is the wrap around service provided here at John Buddle Work Village. We understand the challenges that come with launching, running and growing a business and we’ll help you navigate them whenever you need us.

We’ve been doing this since 2004 and along with our vast amounts of experience and knowledge, we also have access to a large business support network across the region, which we can tap into on your behalf.

We also have a wonderful community. Not only do we have a fantastic team of staff but we’re proud to have a great bunch of existing businesses here who exchange ideas, work together and help each other out.

So as you can see – we don’t just hand over the keys and let you get on with it. We hand over the keys, get to know you and support you with all of your business requirements – whether you’re staying for a while or just with us for a few hours.
