The Rye Partnership was established in November 1996 to bring together key stakeholders to develop a local community response to the socio-economic problems prevalent in the area. It is a membership organisation consisting of private, public, community and voluntary representatives. In 2003 the Partnership became a not for profit Company Limited by Guarantee.

In 2010 the Rye Partnership successfully tendered for the operation of a community centre at the former Tilling Green primary school. The Rye Partnership and its partners will work with local residents to:

  1. Promote and encourage participation from the local community
  2. Offer education and training opportunities
  3. Provide a range of advice and information
  4. Provide leisure and social activities for all ages
  5. Work with local employers and training providers to assess the areas of skills gaps and their training needs
  6. Provide access to employment, volunteering and training opportunities
  7. Provide a one to one mentoring service for people seeking employment and/or training
