Guide on running village halls published by SCVO

A new guide for those considering or currently running a village hall has been published by Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO), with support from Scottish Rural Network and Community Ownership Support Service, part of Development Trusts Association Scotland.

Village halls and other hubs are often at the heart of their local community, especially in rural and island areas, and the new Village and Community Halls Handbook aims to guide organisations through what they need to know to manage and run a sustainable village hall or community space.

Topics covered in the new document include:

  • Taking on a community space
  • Governance
  • Facilities management
  • Digital village halls
  • Climate confident village halls
  • Funding
  • Case studies
