Mayor opens new community hub in the heart of Bury

Ingeus joined Bury Council in celebrating the launch of the Bury NeighbourHub in Mill Gate Shopping Centre at its official opening on Monday, 8 January 2024. Opened with a ribbon-cutting ceremony by the Mayor of Bury, Councillor Sandra Walmsley, the new community hub provides a relaxed environment where local people can go to seek help and advice on issues including housing, employment, money management, and health.

The mayor said: “It was an honor and a privilege to officially open the new advice center. I’m sure it will be a great help to many Bury residents who will welcome a central point, open five days a week, where they can get advice on a wide range of employment and skills support.”

Funded by the Community Investment Fund (CIF), the Bury NeighbourHub is a collaborative project between Bury Works, Bury Council, and Ingeus, an employment services provider working with residents and employers to help create lasting employment. The hub is open Monday to Friday, with agencies such as Jobcentre Plus, Citizens Advice, National Careers Service, and local health support services regularly on-site so that Bury residents can access a one-stop shop of support.
