About Us


LCC Community Trust aims to serve the local community through Projects which help people physically, mentally, emotionally, financially, spiritually and relationally especially in areas of need and short term crisis.

Our service users are of all ages and abilities, we particularly seek to engage those from low income backgrounds, homeless, unemployed, BAME, isolated, disadvantaged, mental health problems, care leavers and single parent families. Our daily activities range from running the Lisburn Foodbank and Social supermarket to summer scheme and workshops offering support for basic life skills including budgeting and cookery skills. We host a ‘Diversity’ project to include service users from BAME community and we run English as a Foreign Language lessons (ESOL).

We use our Inspire cafe as an event space throughout the week for activities including an after schools ‘drop in’ for local primary school pupils and ‘Youngins’, a club to encourage and foster young people’s talents. We run mental health support sessions to allow vulnerable adults in our community to learn how to understand their own mental health better as well as become advocates for each other to offer peer to peer support.
