Support to Manage Community Buildings

Community buildings are key assets for Gloucestershire, not only providing vital meeting places in our communities but also offering essential services.

GRCC has over 90 years’ experience of working with management committees, Parish Councils and social enterprises to help them manage their assets effectively.  GRCC's membership of a national network of Rural Community Councils enables us to provide up to date, robust information, including a full range of information sheets.  

We offer independent advice and practical support on a one-to-one basis. We also co-ordinate regular Community Building Management Network Events for volunteer management committees involved in running community buildings. These allow you to gain up to date information on legislative changes and training on specific topics.

We have also been supporting groups which have taken over children's centre buildings across Gloucestershire.  

In order to boost usage of community-owned buildings GRCC hosts an online countywide database of village halls and community centres available for hire.
