Our mission is to meet the needs of the local community and surrounding area of East Yorkshire inhabitants and to provide top quality legal advice and assistance in welfare benefits, debt advice, consumer advice, employment advice and advocacy in order to set the best outcome for our clients. We offer support on welfare benefits, housing, debts, employment and we work in partnership with Pepperells solicitor for any legal enquiries. At Cherry Tree Community Association will seek to provide these services in the timeliest manner and with an ongoing comprehensive quality control programme to provide 100% customer satisfaction.
The Beverley Cherry Tree Community Centre has always been a base for local residents, pensioners and those in need. We are an inclusive community providing free advice, foodbank services and community projects.
Our goal is to ensure no one is left without help. Options, advice and friendly staff are always available for support.
Launched initially by the local Children’s Society to provide services specifically for disadvantaged children in the area, the organisation has steadily evolved to become an integral part of the community. Established as a Community Centre in 1993, following the closure of a Family Centre run jointly by the Children’s’ Society and Humberside County Council, the Humberside County Council gave the building to the new Association in 1996. Steve Snowden joined the Cherry Tree Community Association in 1994 as a part-time neighbourhood worker. Born in Beverley, he was dedicated to the Centre until his sudden death in 1999. He helped to co-ordinate activities and provided essential links to the local community. Steve’s son Matthew followed in his father’s footsteps and became a valued member of the Management Committee before becoming the youngest ever Mayor of Beverley.
A lottery grant in 2000 paid for the setting up of the Advice Service including a first floor extension to the main building and the re-building of the Tree-Tops Pre-School (now Little Gruffalo’s). The Advice Service and Pre-School are now very much established, particularly serving the local council estate. In 2016 the organisation changed its governing structure to become a Charitable Incorporated Organisation and changed its name to the Beverley Cherry Tree Community Centre. The Beverley Cherry Tree Centre has always been an anchor for the local community it has a Preschool Ofsted rated Good, A free Advice Service (AQS quality mark) A Community pantry, A weekly youth club, A housing Project, Credit Union and Community Activities.
