Lockleaze Neighbourhood Trust

Welcome to Lockleaze Neighbourhood Trust…

Lockleaze Neighbourhood Trust (LNT) is a small charity based in Lockleaze, where we:

  • Manage the Cameron Centre
  • Produce the local newsletter called Unlocked
  • Run and support activity groups at the Cameron Centre, for many people in the community
  • Put on and support community events (more information on the what’s on page)

Our three main aims are:

  • To identify community needs and to work with the local community to address those needs
  • To support and encourage local initiatives to enable local people to develop their abilities and self confidence
  • To work with statutory agencies and other charitable sources of funding to maximise investment in Lockleaze.
