Community House Hubs can take many forms, and this can be a house or flat made available for use by the community – in other words, a ‘community house’.
Cheltenham Borough Homes (CBH) has provided a Community House Hub as part of the St Paul’s Regeneration Project. It has a kitchen, two separate spaces for the community to use, and office space for neighbourhood staff from CBH. It provides a local point of contact between CBH and tenants, as well as provide a base from which staff can carry out community and youth work in the neighbourhood.
First Choice Homes, in Oldham, have similarly made a couple of flats available for resident groups to use for meetings, activities and a community café.
