How to bid
The council is looking for community minded residents to form new management groups, and take over the running of four community centres across the city.
Each of the centres would need to be operated as a social enterprise by a constituted group who would be responsible for overall management, including arranging bookings for groups, events and parties and generating a profit sufficient to cover day to day running costs and on-going repairs and maintenance.
Anyone interested in becoming part of a team at a community centre should complete the expression of interest form below and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. They will be required to complete a simple application form and will then be provided with an information pack about the centre. Once sufficient applications are received a successful applicant will be selected and notified.
