About The Selby Trust
 
The Selby Trust manage the Selby Centre in Tottenham, one of the most deprived parts of London. The Selby Centre was previously a secondary school which became a community centre in 1986. 
 
The centre is home to 40+ independent charities/small voluntary organisations and a further 100+ organisations also deliver from the Selby Centre. Services range intheir support for the local community, including the local foodbank, services for people with HIV/AIDS, Housing Support, Return to Work services etc. 
 
We also run activities and events for the community including a global garden food growing project, healthy transport project and a work skills programme.
 
How corporate volunteering helps the Selby Trust.
 
We fully manage the Selby Centre facility and by doing so we are able to keep therents below market-rate value to enable small charities and voluntary organisations to survive. However, managing such a huge site is not cheap and therefore the help we get from corporates for painting, gardening, maintenance and helping us with some building projects means we do not have to increase the rents of charities to pay directly for this work.
