The Story of One Stop Shop.

 

One Stop Shop grew from the vision of a number of local groups that wanted to bring community-serving organisations into one place. They perceived the need for high-quality, suitable, secure, accessible and welcoming accommodation to house the voluntary sector organisations serving Lutterworth, the surrounding rural areas and and even the adjacent counties and other close local areas.


After many years of campaigning, a number of disappointments, research and further campaigning, the dream became reality in January, 2003, when One Stop Shop at Wycliffe House opened its doors to the public. The official opening was to come just over a year later when the Princess Royal visited One Stop Shop to unveil a plaque commemorating the event.


The development of One Stop Shop has enabled a number of organisations to work together in partnership to deliver this innovative and exciting facility. Sharing a building not only allows everyone to benefit from combining resources, but also generates a synergy and energy which is to everyone's advantage.


One Stop Shop at Wycliffe house is managed by an executive committee with representatives from all the tenant organisations. As a community led initiative, the project is dependent on volunteer time and support from all the groups involved. Initial funding came from the tenant organisations with considerable support from the landlords, H.W. Coates Limited. Leicestershire County Council was also able to provide a one-off grant towards the setting up and conversion costs for the building.


Following on from the initial success, in April 2003, funding was secured from the Welland Partnership to develop an ICT Access Centre for the local community. The Community Computer Centre, known as C3, provides computer access for local people and is a well-used and popular resource.


One Stop Shop at Wycliffe House is home to the following:


One Stop Shop has come a long way in a remarkably short space of time and looks forward to the opportunities that the future will bring. What has been achieved would not have been possible without the commitment and determination of the volunteers and staff involved.
