Powys County Council Community Regeneration has helped to get pilot Community Hub projects rolling in three community centres already – one in each of the Shire areas.
How the Council has helped
In each case:
Powys County Council staff have provided initial advice on planning for a Community Hub.
Grants have been provided to employ professional planning and community development support.
The Council has made seed funding available to launch fundraising for major building refurbishment work.
The pilot projects
These three very different projects illustrate the huge range of possibilities for Community Hubs elsewhere. Click on the links below to find out more about the way these projects have made use of this support.
Harnessing Community Strengths
"A Community Hub is a multi-use, community-run and led building, which is proactive in enabling a range of services to improve the quality of life for the whole community."
There’s virtually no limit to the activities you can provide in your Community Hub. It very much depends on the services which local people need and want to use, and how much you are prepared to work together to get them set up and supported.
This site is designed to help you plan and set up a Community Hub which meets the needs of your community.
