What does Placeshaping mean to Freebridge?

As a community based housing provider, Freebridge has always aspired to a wider role than just that of a landlord, recognising that People and Place are as important as Property.

  • We put our residents and customers at the centre of what we do and ensure they have real influence on our organisation.
  • We provide more than just landlord services because we care about the people and places where we work.
  • We recognise the importance of a local focus and work actively with our local authorities and local partners to improve and shape places.
  • We believe there is strength and benefit to residents and stakeholders in maintaining a strong, independent, diverse, values driven housing association sector.

The Placeshaping Team takes an active role in the community and are perfectly placed to organise, facilitate and support community groups across West Norfolk.

We Build – We Work – We Care – We Share

If you would like to arrange to look round, or for any more information please contact the Placeshaping Team on 01553 667777 or Email: PlaceShapers@freebridge.org.uk

Groups that use the centre

Woodcraft Folk

Woodcraft Folk are a weekly youth group based at the Discovery Centre and have told us why they chose to hold their sessions there.

“We are a children’s charity that promotes education for social change. The location of the centre is ideal as it’s based on a housing estate that has exactly the demographic we need and we are on their doorstep.

“We can easily get to places like Lynnsport woods for activities and Family Action kindly let us use the garden at the back of Discovery too. We also do a lot of ‘sit down and think’ activities and the inside space works well for that.

“Our sessions are really affordable and we are funded by the Youth Investment Fund so we have had to find somewhere that works for us but is affordable and flexible and the Freebridge centres are just that”.
