   Assessment of Support for Community Buildings in Leicestershire    14 January, 2013

Leicestershire County Council recognises that Village Halls and Community Centres are highly valued facilities at the heart of communities. They provide local people with a place to meet where news, information and ideas can be exchanged, views expressed and actions discussed and agreed. They also provide the base from which services for the local community are offered, often by local community groups and where people meet for social, recreational and educational events and activities.

The County Council supports community buildings because of their value to local communities and currently provides a range of assistance including Grants, advisory and support services and web services such as the Leicestershire Villages and Parishes website. In order to ensure that future support is most effective in helping to maintain and develop community building services the County Council is currently considering the focus of its support and where existing as well as any additional resources might best be directed. Your views are essential in shaping the outcome of this review and, ultimately, influencing the availability of resources to support community buildings in Leicestershire. More »

For the purpose of this survey, they consider a Community Building to be a building that:

-is operated on a not-for-profit business model and the running of which is governed by a Board of trustees, Management Committee or Parish Council

-offers space for other community groups and organisations to use either regularly or on an ad-hoc basis.

For example: Village Halls, Church Halls ,Community Centres, Memorial Halls, Village Institutes, Scout Huts

Buildings that are purpose built and used for sport and leisure such as sports clubs & pavilions and leisure centres are not within the scope of this survey.

If your group or organisation is responsible for the management of a community building LCCwould be grateful therefore if you would complete this short survey.
