We believe The Ridgeway Centre’s facilities and service offering are unique, not only for delivering an excellent experience to delegates and visitors but also for using profits to support the charitable efforts of New Life Church Milton Keynes (the building’s owner) and The Ridgeway Community Trust. Together these charities work locally and internationally helping to build healthy societies and alleviating need.
This means that when you book an event with us, you are also helping those in need. For example, we support and provide a venue for the Milton Keynes Winter Night Shelter. For the coldest months of the year, the homeless in Milton Keynes now have access to a warm bed, a hot meal and a shower. For many, this opportunity is the chance to get off the streets and back into safe accommodation and employment.
Youth and children are a key priority, and The Ridgeway Community Trust is the umbrella organisation for The Edge Youth Group and Ignite Fridays, both of which offer quality activities and support to the local community and families. On Wednesdays, free Speaking English classes are available at The Ridgeway Centre to anyone whose first language isn’t English. We also house Milton Keynes Money Advice, a free service that provides advice and budgeting support to those who are struggling to manage their money, and are a partner in the Milton Keynes Foodbank.
