Teesdale Resource Centre – The HUB – Case Study

Company Background

TCR, is a community business based at the TCR Hub charity which exists to enable the people of Teesdale to have opportunities and resources to develop and raise aspirations. We welcome and encourage people from all areas and walks of life to come and use our resources in order to help us invest in our local community. You don’t have to book anything or be a member, just come down and experience our amazing building and grounds.



TCR was introduced to SwitchAid from YMCA North Tyneside. They felt they were paying too much for their bills. After a quick check by SwitchAid, we could confirm that they had rolled out for contract on their electricity which resulted in overnight increase in bills.


SwitchAid found a range of suppliers that offered much lower rates for TCR to choose from. They decided to switch to a deal that generated the largest grant for the centre and fixed pricing for the next 5 years, creating stability for the centre.


Saved – £20,952.79

Raised – £1,400


“The SwitchAid.org savings and cash grant helps us keep the doors open and offer the huge range of activities we do. If we can save money on our bills, then its cash that can then be better focused on helping us deliver our much needed services.”

Jonny Elliot, Facilities Manager
