Worthing Community Hub SSC01 19/20

The Community Hub Strategy aims to combine services ‘under one community roof’ to create modern, flexible, accessible spaces that bring communities together to increase participation and build resilience.


Following the Community Hubs decision taken in January 2019 (Reference report SSC7 18/19) the first community to undertake this approach is Worthing. The Library building in Worthing has been identified as the first community hub and local community engagement has helped shape the services which can be offered from this location.  Learning from this site will allow effective testing of the ideas and support the development of a wider programme for community hubs across West Sussex.
