Managing a community centre or village hall.
The Health & Safety Executive has developed a simple checklist which summarises the areas you may need to consider if your organisation has responsibilities for managing a hall.
The Sussex Community Buildings Advisory Group (SCBAG), which has representatives from across East and West Sussex, helps plan, run and contribute to village hall events and training, shares experience, provides peer assessors for the Hallmark Scheme and represents Sussex Halls in lobbying for improvements in funding and legislation to help volunteers managing village and community halls.
The National Village and Community Halls Network provides an opportunity for members to air their views and consolidate them in the development of policies in support of village halls and similar rural community buildings.
Through its network of skilled advisers, ACRE supports the 80,000 volunteers who run halls and similar rural community buildings, such as church halls and community centres.
Action in rural Sussex offers an advisory service on an annual subscription basis which offers support to those involved in managing and operating these buildings. This includes the provision of key information and guidance documents, training events, workshops and conferences, as well as responses to ad-hoc queries.
