About us

Smawthorne Community project is a charity which was officially opened in October 2005. We are situated on Beancroft Road in Castleford right next door to The Castleford Christian Centre, which is where it all started.

When the building next to our church was put up for sale, we as a church thought that it would be great to buy it and turn it into a project that would really benefit the surrounding community. So we bought the building and with a lot of hard work, help and commitment we managed to turn it into The Smawthorne Community Project @ The Link. We call it that because all though the charity is separate from the church and is run by a panel of trustees, we had a link built to join the two buildings so that we could have full use of the church hall and also we wanted to serve as a link into the community.

We offer our rooms to local groups and support groups,we have a computer suite and are hoping to offer computer courses to the community very soon and we welcome anyone who would like to use our rooms for a support or community minded group.

The aim of the charity is to offer any help and support we can give to the area.
