Welcome to Elmbridge Eco Hub

As a Not For Profit organisation we rely on donations to ensure our sustainability. Without your help we wouldn’t be able to provide the community with the opportunities to learn, make, take, give, grow, share and fix in our space. Every penny donated or earned is pumped back into the organisation to ensure we continue to support our community.

Notification of Summer 2024 Closure

The Eco Hub will close for summer at 4pm Monday 29th July, reopening Monday 2nd September.  This is to allow our lovely dedicated volunteers time off to enjoy a well earned break.

Anyone who has a current “LIVE” Library of Things membership, will have their membership extended by 2 months to help compensate for this closure.

Everything we do is centred around THREE things:

Community

We exist exclusively for the benefit of the people in our community. We want to ensure every member of our community has access to food, skills and equipment either free or at very low cost.

We believe in the circular economy and trying to improve our environment. We aim to recycle, upcycle, reuse what we can, reduce waste and teach others to do the same.

Volunteer

If you would like to get involved with The Hub, have a look at the different initiatives we run, and decide which you would prefer to be part of. It may be that there is more than one initiative that interests you, and that’s great. Simply pop into the Hub and have a chat with one of the volunteers or management team.

Donate

We want to provide people with the opportunity to learn and share their knowledge with others. We strive to encourage and facilitate people to reach their potential, improve confidence and their understanding of the world we live in.

Corporate Social Responsibility

If you are a business, looking to improve your CSR, then look no further.

We have a multitude of options to offer from corporate litter pick days, supporting the Community Fridge, spending a day in the community garden,  conducting a skill share session or helping with the Library of Things.

We kindly ask for a financial contribution of £10 per volunteer, which helps us to cover our costs, and keep the Hub running.
