The impact of Covid-19 on Village and Community Halls in England

Whilst 3 in 20 halls supported Covid relief efforts, the majority stayed closed during the first year of the pandemic.

Building on the Village and Community Halls Survey in 2020, this research provides insights into the ongoing impact of Covid-19, notably on the operations, governance, finances and service provision of halls. The survey was circulated to respondents from the 2020 survey and achieved 1,017 responses. The similarities between the two samples in the 2020 and 2021 aids an assessment of change, and helps us to understand the significant impact of the pandemic
