The Working Centre's Community Tools Projects combine work experience, skill building, recycled materials, and opportunities to positively contribute to the community. To learn more behind the philosophy of Community Tools please see the section Ideas and Influences.
Community Tools are projects designed to put productive tools into the hands of people. They have the added benefit of a co-operative and neighbourhood structure so that individuals do not have to work in isolation. Communities can benefit from developing facilities where individuals have access to tools in order to support local producing and trading.
Community Tools seek to make daily living more affordable and cooperative. Workers and volunteers who are involved in the organization’s everyday activity usually control the service, product or project. The essential ingredient is that the services are provided cheaply and in an accessible way. The projects often have access to tools as their main goal.
