To hub, or not to hub…

We know how important shared, accessible spaces are for strong, resourceful communities. People need places to get together and build positive connections, capacity and networks.

But is a community hub, a building which provides services especially for local people, necessarily right for your Big Local area? This workshop supported Big Local communities who are considering setting up or developing an existing community space.

There was discussion from communities that have established a hub, and from others that have decided not to. The workshop will helped Big Local areas to move their own ideas forward. It suggested what support is available, which tools being developed could help and what the next steps should be if Big Local areas did decide that a hub is right for their community.
