What is Project Motorhouse?

At Project MotorHouse, we believe it takes a range of abilities and capabilities to build a strong community. We produce youth projects which are designed to help local youths explore their potential by widening their horizons, broadening their skill base, demystifying success, fostering their creativity and helping them engage with their local community; all of which improves employability. The charity grew out of a community initiative to save a derelict site on Ramsgate seafront which was owned by Thanet District Council. The youth work side of the project evolved from local school students and residents gardening together at the derelict site. The building has now been sold to developers but the youth work continues.

    Fighting for a better Ramsgate…

    “Bravo to all the young people of Thanet who have given their time, energy and expertise to try to help raise the prospects of all young people in the area. Their enthusiasm is much appreciated by Project Motorhouse which continues to fight for a better Ramsgate, its youth programme.”

    Those amazing people…

    ”I think it is really important that we provide avenues for young people to learn more about the world. I think sometimes for young people it’s hard to actually get experience of the world to actually begin to understand what is expected of them and to understand what the possibilities are and what can be achieved.”
