The Trustee Hub develops the capacity of local leaders across Toronto to make meaningful change in their communities.

The Trustee Hub is an initiative of The Neighbourhood Group (formerly St. Stephen’s Community House) to support community-led groups across Toronto who have received grants to carry out their initiatives.

We are currently home to 40+ projects that are aligned with our mission of fostering a better quality of life for all through social and economic justice.

As a long-established charity in Toronto, we know the impact of grassroots community engagement and advocacy firsthand, and how essential it is to generating meaningful social change. We leverage our resources and institutional supports to further the impact of community-led work.

All trusteed groups receive access to our year-round trainings that are developed through conversations with each of our trusteed groups.
