Training - raising funds for your community hall / centre


  • Are you trying to raise funds for a refurbishment or extension to your building?
  • Do you want to get a new activity started but don’t have the money you need?
  • Would you like to review your hiring and marketing approach to make sure you are maximising your income and getting good use from your building?

Come to our Funding Your Community Building session in February and we’ll help you get going with your fundraising plans. The last time we ran this session, in October, 7 of the 10 participants rated it as ‘excellent’ and the other 3 as ‘good’. People said the session was very informative and found it useful to share ideas and ask questions. Here are the details:

Date: Tuesday 26 February 2019
Time: 10:00am-12:30pm

Action Learning – a free pilot session

Would you like to take part in a free series of training sessions to help you reflect on and improve your work as a trustee or staff member?

We want to find 5 people from community halls / centres to take part in a pilot programme of around 4 half-day sessions using the Action Learning framework. Basically, it’s a way of learning and solving problems that’s based on thoughtful questioning, reflective listening, and wise problem-solving.

At Action Hampshire we’ve been using Action Learning for several years with our School for Social Entrepreneurs – there’s a short video to explain here. We want to try it out with a different group of participants and we think it could really help you to reflect on and find solutions to some of the ongoing issues you might have with your building and organisation.

We’re just looking for expressions of interest at this stage, so please email Kevin Sawers or call 01962 857358. More details after Christmas…
