LLTCA logo - a tree surrounded by text: "Laurencetown, Lenaderg & Tullylish Community Association"Laurencetown, Lenaderg & Tullylish Community Association, which owns Laurencetown Community Centre, is run by a management committe of local volunteers.

LLTCA employs a Community Development Manager and part-time Centre Caretaker. In addition, there are currently three staff members who are funded by the BIG Lottery under Empowering Young People, who deliver a range of services and activities for local young people and any young person with ASD who is able to attend from across the Trust area.

We are financially supported by Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council and the Southern Health & Social Care Trust. The additional money that is required to cover the running costs of the centre comes from rent from regular centre users such as Laurencetown Pre-School, Chest, Heart & Stroke, the ProActive BIG Lottery funded project and LLT Women’s Group. We also get a small amount of revenue kindly donated from birthday parties and other occasional group hire events.

LLTCA is always open to ideas from the local community for activities in the centre. So please call in or contact us if you have any ideas or suggestions.

Check the activities section to see the regular activities taking place in the Community Centre.
