Grants and fundraising training for community halls and centres


Our Funding Your Community Building training session will help you become more able to:

  • Organise a range of activities to help publicise and raise funds for your building
  • Submit high-quality grant applications, to help supplement the ongoing income from hiring out your premises
  • Market your hall so that potential hirers (both local and from further afield) know what you have to offer
  • Set your hire charges to find a balance between covering your running costs (including maintenance and refurbishment) and being affordable to all. Please send me your hire charges so I can produce a report showing what Hampshire buildings charge for various sizes of room.

The training session is on Thursday 25 October from 10:00am to 12:30pm at our office in central Winchester.

Places cost just £25 each for Action Hampshire members (£35 for non-members) if you book by 4pm on Thursday 18 October so go ahead and book your place using the form below. You can download the form, complete it on your computer, and email it to us; details are on the form itself and we’ll invoice you later.


Also make sure you have seen our local funding guide for community buildings and our networking sessions where you can meet and share ideas with other people running community halls and centres. Click on the link and scroll down to the ‘Networking meetings’ section.
