2020 village and community hall survey to be published

ACRE has announced that they will publish the report from the survey run with halls across England at the start of 2020, next week.

The analysis has been conducted by the Centre for Regional, Economic and Social Research (CRESR), at Sheffield Hallam University, on behalf of ACRE. They funded the work with the support of Power to Change.

The Survey was designed and distributed by ACRE via online software and ACRE Network members encouraged halls to complete it.

NRTF and Allied Westminster Insurance Services Limited also helped circulate the Survey.

For 30 years, ACRE has conducted surveys with village and community halls at ten year intervals. These surveys have provided ACRE and its members with up to date information about the operations, finances and management of halls, along with their social and economic impact.

The information helps ACRE advocate and influence a range of stakeholders on behalf of halls, as well as inform the support needed by hall trustees.

The 2020 survey will provide a wealth of insight about these essential community buildings and ACRE is inviting users and hall managers to register for the Zoom launch event next week.
