Re-Opening of Community Venues & Build Back Better Webinars

We recently hosted our first webinar for Wimblecomm venue members and partners. The session was developed and facilitated in partnership with Cathy Varley, a consultant from the national charity, Locality.

Thank you to those who attended and shared their experiences to date. It was great seeing so many of you and hearing about your plans for re-opening and the positive action you are already taking in making your buildings Covid19 secure.   A recording of the webinar has been shared with all Wimblecomm members and post webinar support to help answer any questions not covered has been arranged.

Future webinars and web meetings to enable networking and sharing of best practice and resources will be set up over the coming weeks.  We are keen to hear from our members and partners about any specific issues they are facing that they would like support on.  After all, we are ‘all in this together’!


Please note the resources below were either shared or referenced in our webinar.  If you have any resources that you are happy to share on here, or with our members specifically, please get in touch on Email Susanne.

As always, we advise you to also visit the official government websites for any up-to-date and official guidance which is rapidly evolving in these unprecedented times.
