Community Development Action Hertfordshire
Village Halls & Community Buildings Safeguarding
In November 2020 Action with Communities in Rural England (ACRE) was awarded over £100k from the National Lottery Community Fund to promote good safeguarding practice to Village and Community Halls throughout England.
As a valued member of the ACRE network CDA Herts has worked with voluntary management committees across Hertfordshire to ensure they have the knowledge and confidence to operate in a safe and welcoming manner for all who work with or use their facility.
