Our charitable objectives

To further such purposes as are charitable under the laws of England and Wales as the Trustees see fit from time to time, in particular but not exclusively by advancing Christian faith and witness for the benefit of the community of Lowedges by:

  • Developing services and activities which will help to address the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of all sections of the community

  • Working in partnership with local residents, voluntary and community agencies and statutory service providers to help meet the needs of the community.

What people say

"The Terminus provides an excellent model of what can be achieved in a community of high health need, deprivation and unemployment.  The whole approach has been “people first” and – from the outset - working with local people rather than on them. 


There has been a careful and progressive winning of hearts and minds simply by affording a courtesy of asking people what their needs are, and then listening – a vital underpinning principle of successful community development work."
