"Working to reduce isolation and increase participation of unskilled, lonely and vulnerable people "

Who are we?


Top Church Training are a registered charity whose overall focus is to help people become more involved in community life and progress with their lives.  We aim to help others develop skills & attributes that will enable them to make a valuable contribution to society through employment, as well as increase social participation.


We work predominantly within Dudley Borough, but can also offer our services to those living outside the area.

What do we do?


We have many ways to help you in your journey.  Whether you need assistance with things at home or advice on your finances, vocational education, mentoring & support, learning new skills & re-training, volunteering to help boost your CV.....  or if you simply need to get out of the house and do something fun or have a coffee & chat.

You can bring your children to some sessions too.

Find out what we've been up to


In our blog we keep you up to date with our successes, new workshops and sessions, our plans and what we've been doing to improve or extend our services.

Who do we do it for?


We aim to help everyone from the age of 16 upwards build better social connections.

Some of our services, such as training and mentoring do have some criteria, but we try to help as many as we can - so please talk to us about your needs.  At the very least we may be able to put you in touch with someone else who can help.

We are also happy to take referrals from other services and institutions.


We can't change anything until we get some fresh ideas, until we begin to see things differently.
