Community centres

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the new Tier 2 restrictions the government has put in place, community centres will only be open for essential sessions.

See more information about the local restrictions here.

Updated guidance for multi-use facilities such as community centres is available here.

The Council will be working closely with the management committees to re-open the community centres in line with the latest government advice and ensuring they have a comprehensive risk assessment and confirm the venue is safe to open to the public. (Opening dates may vary.)

Community centres are a great place to meet, hold social, cultural and educational activities for all ages and a place for people to get involved

Check out what's happening at your local community centre. You can ask about availability online on each community centre page.

Independent community centres

In order to provide a sustainable future for community centres, proposals have been put forward for ownership and delivery of them to be transferred to community groups, local entrepreneurs or businesses, independent of the Council.
