Anyone who has visited the Dudson Centre won’t soon forget the sight of the iconic bottle kiln taking pride of place in the centre of the courtyard. Now imagine sitting at work, turning to look out of the window, and seeing that bottle kiln, the Dudson Museum and all its treasures within. Every day. And it looks just as beautiful in the snow as it does the sunshine.
This backdrop; our historic centre which echoes the rich local heritage of the Potteries, and the fantastic community within it, the Dudson Centre is the perfect new home for your charity. And we’ll do our very best to make you feel right at home.
For almost 100 years, we’ve worked together with local VCSE groups and the people in them to provide quality services and support to those who help to improve the lives of local residents. This experience and dedication to the third sector throughout Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent means that we have a unique understanding of the needs of our clients, local charities, community groups and social enterprises.
Our sought-after services are provided by highly experienced professionals to be just what you, your organisation, and your beneficiaries need. Nothing is overlooked, which means we can provide a range of tailored services in two fantastic locations; Stoke-on-Trent and Stafford.
We’ve worked hard to provide modern, attractive office space for our clients, which include heavily discounted rates, caretaking facilities, IT infrastructure, and broadband amongst many other benefits. And at the Dudson Centre, you’re sure to find a comfortable and professional workspace that meets your every need. We manage the office space too, so you can concentrate on your clients and getting your work done.
“Using all the facilities the Dudson Centre has to offer is really easy. From booking meeting rooms to onsite catering in the café and a fully accessible building (including free WiFi), it’s suitable for all types of groups to hire. At reasonable prices too and with friendly staff, there isn’t anything better in Hanley.” The Dove Service, Dudson Centre tenant since 2015.
