ACRE is pleased to announce that they will publish the Report from the Survey which was run with halls across England during the early part 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 who funded the work with the support of Power to Change.
The Survey was designed and distributed by ACRE via online software, helped greatly by ACRE Network members who encouraged halls to complete it. We are also grateful to NRTF and Allied Westminster Insurance Services Limited for helping us to circulate the Survey.
For 30 years, ACRE has conducted surveys with village and community halls at ten year intervals, the last being in 2009. The 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 provides a wealth of insight about these essential community buildings and ACRE invites you to register for the Zoom launch event next week. https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/the-english-village-and-community-halls-survey-2020-report-launch-tickets-121358625917
