Cheshire Community Action (CCA) are doing some research across the Rural Care Community footprint, looking at the developing Community Hub agenda across Cheshire West and Chester.
"Community Hub" describes many venue-based local projects across the UK. Some are planned and delivered by local authorities, others are community-led to a degree whilst also working with a public authority or registered social landlord. Finally, some community hubs emerge from genuine grassroots community action.
The common elements of all community hubs are:
* A venue or building, including libraries, community centres, churches and village halls
* A local context that the hub is intended to serve: an estate, suburb or village;
* An offer, ranging from simple signposting to a wide range of activities and services.
We are contacting organisation/building and asking for their assist assistance with this research. We will also be carrying out some short surveys and will be conducting a workshop with interested parties.
The survey is in 2 parts:
Part 1 is aimed at residents/stakeholders. In the first part we want to ascertain people's current experiences/needs.
Part 2 is aimed at staff/volunteers that manage a space/building. In the second part we want to understand more about the management of the space/building
Cheshire Community Action are interested in engaging with people that live in the rural care community area of the villages of Tarvin, Kelsall, Tarporley, Tattenhall, Huntingdon , Churton, Alford, Little Budworth, Farndon & Malpas.
Information regarding the workshops is expected shortly.
