Managing a community facility 

​We are providing information and support to people managing village halls and other community buildings through the pandemic. We also continue to work on behalf of the Leicestershire and Rutland PFA to advise on the management of playing fields and other outdoor facilities.


To support this work we've gathered together some information and resources that should help you to manage your facility appropriately during this time.


We're updating the information on this page as frequently as possible however things are changing rapidly as the situation continues to develop and availability of the services, information and resources may change.
