GTC also funds the William Collyn Community Centre, a purpose-designed facility in the heart of Girton with attractive and flexible space and available for use by individuals, Village groups and societies and outside organisations and companies. It is run on a day-to-day basis by a manager and three duty managers. Named after the charity’s founder, the Centre has excellent ‘green’ credentials and is open seven days a week.

The office for GTC is located at Dovehouse Court, staffed by an Office Manager and Administrator. Also based there is an on-site Maintenance Supervisor who has day-to-day responsibility for looking after GTC’s 28 almshouses.
