The Waverley

The Community Hub for Vulnerable Adults

The Waverley is a new Community Hub initiative established by East Boro Housing Trust. Situated in the former Waverley Arms pub building on Abbotsbury Road, Weymouth.

The Waverley Community Hub held its Official Opening on May 23rd 2018 when the Mayor of Weymouth & Portland Cllr Gill Taylor performed the opening ceremony followed by refreshments and a tour of the facilities. We are very excited by the opportunities that The Waverley will offer to our tenants, a diverse range of vulnerable groups and individuals and the wider local community.

 

The primary objective of The Waverley is to offer a safe and secure but fun, dynamic and integrated social hub for vulnerable people providing a new multi-use community resource for adults and young people with learning disabilities, mental health needs, the elderly, carers, parents with young families, socially isolated and lonely people and marginalised groups. 

 

Our Function Room is now used by The Nest as a social supermarket providing low cost food for hundreds of people every week in the local community. This room is licensed and is available for hire by local groups, individuals and businesses for meetings, conferences, parties and events. 

 

The Arts & Craft Room is the creative centre, featuring opportunities for everyone to be inspired through art, craft, textiles and music. This is also the new home for East Boro’s highly successful Arts & Crafts Group which has been running for over seven years and offers adults with all disabilities the opportunity to create personal and group projects. 

 

The Waverley Café is a relaxed and friendly place to enjoy hot drinks, light meals and snacks. With a bright, informal main seating area and a cosy, welcoming snug, it offers the perfect place to meet up with friends. This café is open to the general public, encouraging integration between all members of the wider community. The cafe is also run by The Nest, in conjunction with social supermarket.

 

The first floor provides flats accomodation and East Boro's Weymouth local office.
