Our new membership structure

We have introduced a new two-tier structure for our community building services.

Tier One – This tier is free to access. Funded by Surrey County Council, all of Surrey’s community buildings will be able to access ACRE village hall information sheets and template documents. Click here to view the range of information available and contact us to obtain your free electronic copy.

Tier One members also benefit from free desk-top advice and guidance via phone, email and a newly improved website and newsletter service.

Tier Two – This tier has an annual fee of £50.00.  In addition to the universal Tier One services, Tier Two members will also be able to access a personal consultancy service from a specialist at Surrey Community Action on subjects such as governance, safeguarding, conflict resolution, grants and more. (Some local authorities have agreed to fund the Tier Two service so contact us to see if you qualify for this service).

To access the additional range of benefits offered by our Tier Two membership, please contact our Community Buildings Administrator, Becky Stone – email beckys@surreyca.org.uk or call 01483 447133.

Community Development

We have extended our Community Buildings programme by employing a Community Development worker to work with the Lower Green community and with local authorities to establish good governance and financial management of the Lower Green Community Centre as well as creating new support services and activities for the community in a newly refurbished centre. Find out more by visiting the Lower Green Community website.
