Newmains Community Trust was established as part of the community regeneration programme within Newmains with funding provided by the Big Lottery. The initial identification of Newmains as a potential Big Lottery “Our Place” Programme location was put forward by North Lanarkshire Council, leading to Newmains Community Trust receiving initial funding for Phase 1 of the project in 2011.

Through support from Community Enterprises, Coalfields Regeneration Trust , EKOS and other supporters, work was carried out that showed a clear demonstration of the need for a community centre. This enabled the Phase 2 funding application to be completed and securing of £2.3m for building of the NCT Centre as a community focused resource for the wider regeneration of Newmains.

In addition, through partnership working with North Lanarkshire Council the NCT Centre will become the new home for Newmains Library and Newmains Housing Office.
