Covid 19 –—– Safer Community Centres
Helping Community Centres and Village Halls Re-open Safely
Community centres and village halls are places that help to support and sustain public life across the country. They are hugely valued by their communities for playing a multi-purpose role, serving as a social centre, arts centre, sports centre and in some cases providing education, health, or retail services.
The Covid-19 Safer Spaces guide has been published to assist staff and volunteers to ensure their centres are safe to re-open as the different phases of lockdown come to an end.
Developed by Action with Communities in Rural England (ACRE) in partnership with architects IF_DO, and Clarion Futures, this free-to-use guide sets out clear stages of how to safely re-open community centres and village halls across the UK. Visual diagrams illustrate the spatial adaptations required for hiring and other essential services to recommence as safely as possible.
ACRE also produce timely updated information sheets on their website along with example risk assessments and other useful information. Please keep checking these as theses are updated as and when required
