CHAT - Community Hub Action Team
Each village boasts a successful Village Hall that sees to a number of the community's needs. However, sometimes a more dynamic space is needed for certain activities. And this is what was found during a previous Community Enterprise consultation: an absence of a place where multi-generational activities, workshops, and events could take place.
Recently CHAT (Community Hub Action Team) came together to further explore what the people of the KPT area thought. A survey was delivered to every household in our area asking questions regarding use, location, preferences, etc.
The group are using the new data, alongside data from the previous consultation to further develop the hub project forwards.
Responding to data received from our community, CHAT also investigated the introduction of an online 'virtual' community hub that would provide our communities with a single 'go-to' place for users to discover all our area has to offer, including information on our clubs, groups, facilities, local businesses and much more.
The team received funding of £5,000 from the CAF Tourle Foundation to develop the project and are currently in the process of creating KPT Community Hub, that will be available as both a website and a downloadable app for mobile devices.
Creating an online platform where information from our three communities will be available in one place, will make it easier to find, meaning no one misses out on the information that all our area has to offer.
