Reason for consultation To ensure the Councils Community Centres assist in meeting the needs of its communities and that the work incorporates the recommendations made by the Co-operative Communities Scrutiny Committee, and also agreed by Cabinet 18 October 2012.
Overview We will be carrying out a consultation programme for Council Community Centres:
• Leegomery Community Centre
• Sutton Hill Community Centre
• Donnington Lifelong Learning Centre
• Watling Community Centre
• Brookside Community Centre
How to get involved? We will be targeting hirers and users of the community centres.
A range of methods will be used to find out the views of non users who live in the local areas around the five community centres.
A survey will be sent to Community Panel members and from this a focus group of non users will be brought together to find out further why they don’t use the centres and what may encourage them to use centres.
