Community Halls

Well-used and well-managed community halls are vital local assets. The range of activities that these halls support is astonishingly varied, bringing in important sources of local revenue and contributing to community resilience and the maintenance of a vibrant sense of place. Community First Oxfordshire employs a Community Halls Adviser, who provides advice and support to almost 300 community hall and community centre committees across Oxfordshire.

CFO offers advice on a huge range of governance, general operations, refurbishment, insurance and energy efficiency topics. In addition, our grant funding advice continues to be crucial to a hall committee’s ability to meet the needs of their users. In 2014, CFO launched an online Community Halls Directory, which enables clients to easily locate and hire community buildings. This highly visible (and free!) marketing initiative continues to generate much-needed new income for halls.
