Mansfield Woodhouse Community Development Group (MWCDG) has been serving the community of Mansfield Woodhouse since 1995.
The project started life in Burnaby House, Church Street, before quickly outgrowing the premises and relocating to its current home on Park Road in 1998.
This unique, friendly community project based at Park Road Resource Centre is run by paid staff and volunteers, working for and with the local community to enhance the quality of life for people in the whole of Mansfield Woodhouse.
This is achieved with the provision of educational and vocational training, plus a variety of services offering advice, support and recreational activities.
As well as protecting and sustaining the existing services offered, the Group strives to improve and widen its objectives to cater for the changing needs and aspirations of the people of Mansfield Woodhouse. The Group is able to offer varying facilities and services to meet its objectives by obtaining funds, donations and in-kind support from many different sources.
Over its 20+ year history, MWCDG has hosted a range of services including a Cyber Café, Créche, Hard2Reach Project, Youth Project, Schools Extended Services Co-ordinator, Business Development Coaches, Volunteers into Employment Project and One2One Counselling.
