St Simons Community Project was opened in 1993. The centre was set up to provide a job search facility for local unemployed residents who could use it as a drop-in for their needs, c.v production, telephone facilities etc. The project provided a place for them to meet, read the local newspapers and to continue their search for employment with the assistance of staff.
The project has gone from strength to strength over the years and now has 10 members of staff.
The centre itself has also undergone many changes since opening, the addition of rooms to create an ICT suite with modern equipment, a training/conference room and offices on the upper floor and more recently an ICT suite on the ground floor has been re-equipped and re-designed to be more disability friendly.
