Bishops Hull Hub

Securing funding to create a new community hub in Bishops Hull.

Smart Response

The Smart Communities team initially worked with the trustees to source funding for architectural plans and other professional fees. We then devised a funding plan for the capital costs, writing the initial funding applications alongside the trustees and then critiquing further applications. We also connected the trustees with other organisations in our network to help shape their project.


The trustees – with our support and with their skills, energy and great determination – met their targets and Bishops Hull Hub was officially opened in July 2021. It is now available for all kinds of events and activities to bring people together. It’s a fantastic building which they should be very proud of.
