Community Buildings Network is a forum for volunteers who manage community buildings. It meets three times a year and is supported by Derby City Council and Community Action. It is hosted by a different community building each time. Every meeting provides time to network with others as well as having a topic ranging from 'Saving money on your energy bills' to 'Health and Safety'. If you are currently wrestling with an issue, then there is probably someone in the network who has already found a solution!

Whether you manage a building for your own group, or run a building that you hire out to others, then you might find this Network helpful. For more information, please contact Sarah Wheatley or call 01332 641264.
