We Need Your Help

We are conducting research to develop a new and improved service for village and community halls in Derbyshire.

We acknowledge the vital importance that community halls have in the region - and the incredible work that volunteers do to ensure that these halls thrive. To make sure halls continue to thrive in increasingly difficult times we are developing an exciting new service for you, our service users – and we want your help in shaping the future of this service.

We at RAD are passionate about the work that you do, and want to ensure that our support is best suited for your needs. As such, we are providing a number of ways in which you can get involved and have your say!

Short (but comprehensive) survey

Firstly, you can participate in our survey. This will only take five minutes to complete, and gives you a chance to influence the type and scale of assistance that RAD will provide to community halls going forward.  Please complete by 10.00am on Friday 5th July.


Focus Group

Secondly, if you would like a further chance to shape our services, we will be running a focus group at 10:00am on Wednesday 3rd July in the Town Hall, Matlock, DE4 3NN. This will give you the freedom to provide suggestions and comments in more detail. (If that’s not enough to tempt you, free refreshments will also be provided!). All halls attending will also receive a FREE ACRE Information Sheet (usually £12 each).

Your participation will make a massive difference, helping to make sure that our support continues to improve to best suit your needs. Click on the link below to send us an email that you would like to attend.

Take Part

Please feel free to encourage as many members of your group to participate in the review. The more people that get involved, the better!

If you require any help  completing the survey, or with anything else relating to our service, please call on 01629 592977 / 592973 / 592970.
