Support for existing community groups

Arranging community group insurance

If you are going to be delivering sessions, activities or events then we recommend that your group have appropriate insurance. There are many insurance companies that offer community group insurance. These are usually annual policies that need renewing each year. Costs will depend on the nature of the activities or events you are wanting to deliver .

Promoting your community group

View information on how to promote and advertise your community group.

Running your community group safely

Voluntary groups are not required to undertake risk assessments; however, they are strongly advised to do so. In addition, it may be a requirement of a funding or governing body and the use of risk assessments can also provide evidence of good practice that may be used to negotiate better insurance premiums.

Community group grants and funding

We recognise the valuable role that voluntary, community and faith groups play in enhancing the life of the people of Chorley. We are committed to supporting local groups and organisations across Chorley to access opportunities and secure funding to improve services and facilities in your local area.

Planning a community event

If you are organising an event you will have a number of responsibilities. As the organiser, you will be legally responsible for the safety and wellbeing of those people attending and working at the event.
