The All Pulling Together Community Association was founded in October 2010 and was set up by the local residents of Park Estate Stonehouse. It was such a success that we decided to have a permanent base to provide information and support, so set up APT Central on 21st March 2011. We have continued to grow as an organisation and have spent the last 9 years supporting our clients and community. We would also like to thank all of our funders who have supported and continue to support APT.
In 2017 we became a CIC (Community Interest Company No 10707750)
WHO ARE WE?
APT Central is the home of the All Pulling Together (APT) Community Interest Company. We also host within our building a number of local community and statutory organisations.
Together through APT we are all working to improve the quality of life on the Park Estate and within the whole of Stonehouse. At the heart of the organisation are a team of dedicated local volunteers.
We also work together to support new services and activities such as local play programmes, fun days and new courses based on local residents suggestions.
