About Whitley Bay Big Local

We are Whitley Bay Big Local, the community-led charity that owns and runs the Whitley Bay Hub.


Our doors are wide open, welcoming each and every one of you in our community. We offer a friendly café, along with fantastic spaces and meeting rooms to hire. And let's not forget about our regular activities from family crafts to our pay as you go pantry and fix it cafes.


Our vision? To make Whitley Bay an even better place to live. A place where people feel more connected to each other and to their town. 


We’re all about bringing people together and helping you to develop the skills and confidence to take positive action. 


That's why we take the time to listen and find out what matters most to you. So far this has included projects to help combat loneliness, support people who are trying to make ends meet, and taking small but meaningful steps together to address global climate change.


Come and see us at The Hub where you can have a coffee, get some information or advice,  join an activity group, volunteer, and much much more.
